AbstractThis paper explores how multinational firm take decisions with regard to outward FDI (OFDI) depending on total factor productivity (TFP). In particular, we examine how the TFP of an individual firm interacts with the host country's factors, and its indirect impact on the location decision. An annual data set from 2008 to 2013 for publicly listed multinational firms in China is examined. The empirical results suggest that, first, the TFP could stimulate the OFDI engagement of a firm. Second, the influence of the firm's TFP is consistent across firms with different institutional advantages. Third, the firm's TFP reduces the importance of the host country's market potential on the likelihood of the firm's entry into a host country. (C) 2016 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
