Abstract: Since China opened its economy to foreign investment in 1979, it has become the second largest Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) destination in the world after the USA. Over the past three decades, the manufacturing sector has dominated China’s FDI inflow, however, when manufacturing activity is bifurcated into low and high technology classes, it becomes evident that China is in a transition stage, moving from FDI in traditional low-tech manufacturing activity to a high-tech manufacturing environment. This paper attempts to analyse the key determinants of FDI inflow across low and high technology manufacturing industry across the four geographical regions of China. In the paper we empirically investigate the determinants of FDI inflows to both high and low-tech manufacturing industries by market size, labor cost, labor quality, and government spending on human capita.

Abstract: Due to its public characteristic and authority background to some extent, monopolizing enterprises can possess limited resources alone so as to amass excess profits and widen social gap in income and distribution by setting up systems such as entering a barrier and restricting competition. August 30th, 2007, China’s "anti-monopoly law" first introduced, but the whole law articles working out aiming to solve the unfairness of income and distribution in monopoly industry are still full of shortcomings. On this basis, this paper analyses the formulation of relevant public polices from the angle of both administrative as well as economic means.

International Journal of Business and Management , 2009,
Abstract: The paper analyses the states quo of the China’s natural monopoly industry property right and selects 64 companies in electric power, the coal gas and the water production and supply industry as the sample, to analyze the state-owned stock proportion to the achievements expressed by net assets returns ratio influence. Such conclusions can be drown: First, the state-owned stock proportion and the company achievement present the non-linear correlation dependence; Second, controlling shareholder's state-owned property right nature and performance present remarkable inverse correlation, the relation of state-owned stock proportion and net assets returns ratio present inverse "U" shape. Therefore, in the present stage, the state-owned stock proportion in natural monopoly industry should be reduced. But it is not suitable to withdraw or to privatization completely, that is to say, the state-owned capital should still maintain the controlling force.

International Journal of Computer Science Issues , 2010,
Abstract: With the astonishing technological progress in industry during the current epoch, companies are facing a dynamic unpredictable market environment that makes survival to a certain extent difficult for them. Consequently, flexibility seems to be the best approach to enable companies to have an effective response to environmental threats such as economic crisis, growing competitors and market demand fluctuation. Among different types of flexibility, labor flexibility seems to have a determining effect in making a system flexible, since labors are one of the most important resources of a company. This project tries to present a new method to achieve labor flexibility as an effective strategy for garment manufacturing companies that faces market demand fluctuations. The final result of the project shows the proposed algorithms are capable of finding the optimum strategic solution for applying labor flexibility on the production line of the case study.

系统工程理论与实践 , 2007,
Abstract: In this paper,we empirically assess the impact of internal and external factors on the auto industry.Here,we examine the impact of labor,capital labor ratio and openness on the output of the domestic auto industry using the unrestricted error correction model(UECM).Based on the bounds test we assess if the output of the auto industry is cointegrated with the above-mentioned determinants.The estimated short-run and long-run elasticities with respect to the determinants are reported.We found that whether long-run and short-run,labour has negative and significant effect on output,factor proportions have positive impact,openness has significant and positive effect only in the long-run.Strategies to enhance competitiveness in the auto industry are given in the paper.

Mohammed Belal Uddin,Bilkis Akhter
Pakistan Journal of Commerce and Social Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: This study aims to investigate, through the development and operationalized constructs of service quality, service charge, perceived value, and customer satisfaction; customersatisfaction and its determinants of the banking industry in Bangladesh. An exploratory factor analysis and structural equation modeling was used to analyze data. Measurement model and structural model indicate that service quality and fair service charge both havepositive direct impact on customer satisfaction in a mass service industry (i.e., banking industry). It was further observed that they also have indirect influence on customer satisfaction through perceive value, i.e. perceived value has mediating role betweenquality, charge fairness and satisfaction. Bank managers are recommended to formulate operations and marketing strategies that focus on desires of customers to enhance level of satisfaction.

Journal of Game Theory , 2012, DOI: 10.5923/j.jgt.20120101.02
Abstract: This paper considers a continuous-time dynamic model of the strategic capacity investment of two labor-managed firms in a new industry and constructs a set of perfect equilibria of the model. The paper then finds that there are perfect equilibria where neither firm invests to its steady-state reaction curve.

Abstract: This paper examines determinants of labor force participation of married women in District Gujrat, Pakistan. Although in Pakistan women are participating in labor force but their proportion is very low. According to Labor force Survey 2009-10 female labor force contribution is 15.45% which is very low as compared to other South Asian Countries. In this study an attempt is made to find out the determinants which affect female labor force participation. The study was conducted with a sample of 301 married women by using stratified two stage cluster sampling method. Multilayer Perceptron Neural Network Model was used for analysis purpose. The study showed that literacy status, area of residence, family system, family size, husband’s education were most important determinants in predicting female labor force participation.
