We are pleased to host a research roundtable featuring Dr Rumintha WickramaSekera of QUT Business School, who is a visiting fellow at Rikkyo University. His research is focused on identifying the dynamics of the internationalization process of small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs), including his PhD research, which examined the internationalization of the Australian wine industry. Recently he has expanded his research to examine factors behind the Internationalisation and longevity of firms in Chile, Brazil, Taiwan, India. His aim is to extend this research to the United States of America and Japan. 
Abstract:  Many large firms internationalise via FDI, resulting in the hollowing out of jobs in various sectors of the economy. While the income earned from overseas ventures has a positive impact on the current account, taxes and shareholders, the benefits to the home economy can be limited. In Australia over 90% of firms are SMEs. These firms tend to internationalise via exporting, adding to jobs, economic growth and vitality to local economies. In addition, SMEs are innovative, nimble and the incubators for larger firms. Researchers have investigated and explained the successful internationalisation of firms in terms of export market development and have demonstrated the applicability of the staged approach to internationalization. These theories assume that firms pass through a process of sequential/incremental stages of international involvement, ranging from various pre-export stages to stages with greater international commitment to exporting, and foreign direct investment and production overseas (Crick, 1995). However, in recent years there have been criticisms levelled at these theories due to their inability to explain rapid internationalisation and de-internationalisation by firms. This presentation highlights key success factors in the internationalisation of SMEs in a sustainable/long-lived manner. The research is grounded in an adapted Innovation-diffusion model along with Resource Based View and Expectancy theory. Evidence is presented from studies conducted in Australia, Chile, and Taiwan.
Dr Rumintha WickramaSekera is an Associate Professor in International Business at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) Business School, Brisbane, Australia.
