N2 - The chapter aims to study the international expansion of SMEs in China. The data was collected from around 500 SMEs and then analysed using multivariate regressions; the models used the firms’ export intensity at the regional, national, and international level as dependent variables. The results showed (i) that several factors are hindering the expansion of Chinese SMEs (this was expected, although they seem to face fewer barriers than their Western counterparts), (ii) that finance does not seem to be a barrier to their expansion, (iii) that different barriers apply to cross the regional and national boundaries, and (iv) that ownership by the state does not seem to play a relevant role in the international expansion. The chapter concludes with some concluding remarks and contributions for policy-makers and practitioners.
