This paper focuses on institutional change as the central and most consequential contextual aspect of China's transition. Identification of key characteristics of China's emergent institutions leads to propositions on their relevance for international business practice. China's transition also raises issues for theory development, including the way that transition is modeled, the need to draw upon multiple perspectives, and the concomitants of a contextual approach.
