Abstract

This aim of this paper is to study the characteristics of the internationalisation process and to identify its determinants in a representative sample of firms in the Italian automotive chain. The main findings of an econometric analysis based on micro-evidence are that: a) the firms engage in complex modes of internationalisation; b) the individual firm’s characteristics play a significant role; c) the firms located in the province of Turin have a clear localisation advantage, a sort of an“industrial district” effect.

Keywords: Internationalisation, Firm Behaviour, Auto Industry, Qualitative Choice Models
