Yujeong Yang, Teaching Assistant Professor, Department of Political Science, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign
Tuesday, February 1, 2022
12:00-1:00 PM
Off Campus Location
60th Anniversary Alumni Lecture Series

Chinese multinational corporations (MNCs) in Africa have often invited criticism for hiring Chinese expatriates at the expense of native workers. Do Chinese firms increase the number of Chinese expatriate workers, and if so, do they rely more heavily on expatriate workers than do MNCs from other sources? In this talk, she discusses when and why Chinese MNCs rely on Chinese expatriate workers and how host countries' institutions influence Chinese MNCs' decisions to bring expatriate workers.
