Abstract: The 10th IIBC has been hosted by the Facultad de Economía y Empresa from the Universidad de Zaragoza, Spain, in September of 2014. The main theme has been “IBERIAN MULTINATIONALS DRIVING THE CRISIS RECOVERY”. We really believe that the Iberian firms and specifically those that have internationalized have played (and continue to play) an important role in the recovery process of the Portuguese and Spanish economies. The current news about these economies is positive; however we still need to work on it. This conference has provided a privileged forum to discuss this situation along with the recent work on such an important subject; but also, it has allowed us to share our research about other topics related to Foreign Direct Investment and Exporting with regard to both large firms and SMEs, cultural aspects or new ventures among others. In particular, this book includes 17 papers grouped under 6 parts of general topics: • Macroeconomic, Financial and Political Aspects of FDI • International Management and Cultural Topics • Determinants of Export Performance • International Networking • SMEs and Exporting • New Ventures and Entrepreneurship These current topics are analyzed from different perspectives such as finance, marketing, economy or management; and also from different research streams or theories and different contexts or countries (authors come from Universities from Portugal -8-, Spain -8-, United Kingdom -1- and Hungary -1-). All of that leads to enrich the debate and contribute to improve our international knowledge. On behalf of the Editors team, I would like to express our gratitude to the authors for sharing with all of us their research; and to the Universidad de Zaragoza (Spain) and the DGA-FSE (COMPETE Research Group, S125) for the financial support, since without their help, this book would have not been possible. Finally, we hope that you find this book interesting and a source of inspiration to new studies that help to improve our internationalization knowledge.
