Dear all

I'm delighted to inform you of the recent publication of 'Business development across countries', a special issue of Cross Cultural Management (CCM), guest-edited on this occasion by Demetris Vrontis and Amir Shoham.

The table of contents is listed below, and subscribers can find the papers online at this link<>.

We also take the opportunity to welcome Dr Kristine M. Kawamura as Section Editor of CCM's Scholar Corner.  Similar to our existing Executive Corner, we plan interviews with celebrated academics who will explore the research agenda for CCM's readers.

Best regards
Martyn Lawrence
