Institutions and Emerging Economies

Members of this group are interested in institutions and emerging economics.

Recent trends in the global business environment indicate the ever-increasing business importance of emerging economies (EEs).Moreover,significant institutional differences (e.g. regulations, culture, norms, practices) exist between advanced economies (AEs) and EEs, and within EEs. We focus on EE challenges and opportunities for AE managers and firms from institutional perspectives. We aim to provide insights for institutional aspects of major business functions (e.g. marketing, management) for doing business in and out of EEs. Specific attention will be given to New Zealand as ‘Asia Pacific Trading Nation’ and EEs that are of specific interest to New Zealand.
