Abstract
This paper discusses the determinants of internationalization in the palm oil industry by unravelling its current state of internationalization in the context of Malaysian firms using the Ownership-Location-Internalization [OLI] framework. It aims to describe the palm oil industry's internationalization endeavours in the form of motives of market entry for international production. Malaysia has been the largest exporter of palm oil globally for more than a decade but in recent years the industry landscape had changed from that of an exporter to that of expansion through foreign direct investment (FDI) searching for natural endowments such as land banks in neighbouring countries. With the shift in country positioning from an inward FDI to an outward FDI, specific advantages such as Ownership and Location signify the need to establish what should be the determinants to internationalize, such as, resource or market seeking, entry choices relating to a firm's operation or control of diverse resources. This paper applies Dunning's eclectic paradigm of OLI advantages and performance dynamics in the context of the Malaysian palm oil companies to analyze international production strategies within the palm oil industry.
