Dear all


We are delighted to announce publication of The Multinational Business Review’s first issue of 2013. 


This issue contains two novel empirical papers that test the nature and extent of home regionalization, and a theoretical paper that examines the limits of home regionalization. Finally, there are two further empirical papers, one testing the strategic motivations of Chinese MNEs in Denmark and the other analyzing MNEs and their environmental accountability in home and host countries.
