Abstract

Building on transaction cost analysis and business culture similarity, this study examines the effect of supplier specific assets and business cultural similarity on the export performance in the Asian-Asian and Asian-Western export relationships. Employing a survey design, we examine 262 export relationships using structural equation modelling. The empirical findings show that the relationship between supplier specific assets and cultural similarity have a stronger effect on the export performance in the Asia-Asian than in the Asian-Western relationships. We outline theoretical explanations for these effects in terms of the role of collectivist culture and safeguarding mechanisms across cultural business contexts. Implications for export managers are explored.
