Report Launch, The Effects of Overseas Business Expansion on Firm Performance: Evidence from Australia.

This report examines the impacts of Australian firms’ overseas business activities (outsourcing, import and export) on their performance, namely employment both casual and full-time workers, profitability and total sales revenue. The perceived negative impact of overseas business activities on employment does not likely occur due to the potential growth opportunity. Thus, policymakers shall not discourage a firm’s engagement in overseas business activities. Even if an overseas business activity is perceived to generate a negative impact at home, it is more often than not that the potential growth opportunity (size effect) can offset such negative impact.
