This book uses the concepts of both cultural and psychic distance to analyse managers' perceptions in international business
settings, with a specific focus on European and Chinese ventures in the green technology industry. The key concept of 'distance'
refers to the variations of cultures, languages, business practices, policies and regulations that distinguish different countries.
Offering empirical case studies and theoretical refinements on how scholars can conceptualise and operationalise the psychic
distance construct, the authors provide a comprehensive examination of European foreign direct investment (FDI) to China and
Chinese FDI to Europe. Contributing to the Marie Curie scheme, Partnering Opportunities between Europe and China in the Renewable
Energy and Environmental iNdustries (POREEN), this book is an invaluable read for managers and practitioners.
