Abstract

Latin America is an under-researched region that has the potential to yield new and important insights on the internationalization of firms from emerging markets, particularly as compared with the experience of firms from other regions. At the same time, some of the unique features of Latin America are generating new ideas that contribute to a better understanding of how the home country influences the behavior of firms in general and their foreign expansion in particular. In this article, we discuss such contributions and present some suggestions for future research.
