Editorial 6(4)


This thematic issue attempts to expand scholarly understanding of international entrepreneurship in China, by providing empirical evidence of the current problems key to the success of foreign entrepreneurs in China, and analysing the context of entrepreneurship in that country. The need to understand foreign entrepreneurship in China is both an important and a timely problem, because China is transforming into the world’s economic leader, and at the same time the conditions for international entrepreneurs are rapidly changing in the global business environment, especially in the context of emerging economies (Bruton, Ahlstrom, & Obloj, 2008). As such, this issue contributes also to an emerging new scholarly literature aimed at understanding the dynamic nature of international business in emerging economies, which, as observed by Puślecki, Trąpczyński, and Staszków (2016), needs to be revisited by scholars using new approaches, and new empirical evidence.
