  • Abstract There are more and more multinational companies adopting localization
    strategy in china, including all kinds of functions. Comparing with the
    reality, the related reaserchs about localization issues are very fewer.
    In order to understand more about the content of “localizatin” (or call
    “local responsiceness”), the study divided localization into three
    kinds of sub-parts, including physical business activities, soft
    management machanism and human resources. Futhermore, the study propses
    and examines various determinants of localization.
    The findings of this reaserch are following: (1) Factors including
    culture distance, product demand heterogenity and Taiwan experience will
    influence the localization of physical business activities. (2) Factors
    of affecting localization of soft management machanism contain product
    demand heterogenity, industry cluster, headquarter commitment and Taiwan
    experience. (3) Factors of affecting localization of human resource
    contains product demand heterogenity, headquarter commitment and the
    dependence of subsidiary on headquarter.
    Above all, we also found the influencial factors for three different
    kinds of localization are different.
