The international joint venture literature states that reducing risk is one of the most important reasons for sharing ownership with partners (Root, 1988). During times of uncertainty, MNCs can buffer the negative impacts of abrupt environmental change by sharing risk with their joint venture partners (Anderson and Gatignon, 1986). This lower risk enables MNCs to better tolerate joint venture subsidiaries during times of uncertainty (Contractor and Lorange, 1988; Harrigan, 1985).

Joint ownership in non-crisis-stricken countries The extent to which an MNC has joint ventures in non-crisis-stricken countries also influences its decision about whether to divest struggling subsidiaries in economically troubled countries. The MNC that has pursued geographic diversification via joint ventures is likely to have a greater reservoir of organizational resources and managerial capacity than the MNC that has diversified via wholly-owned subsidiaries (Contractor and Lorange, 1988). This is because partnering with other firms requires fewer organizational resources and less managerial capacity, leaving a reservoir of capacity that can be used for troubled subsidiary operations in crisis-stricken countries.

6 percent of Japanese trade was intra-firm (Kiyota and Urata, 2005; OECD, 2002).

For example, during the Asian economic crisis, Asea Brown Boveri (ABB) restructured its global intra-firm network to reduce productive capacity in high-cost Europe and expand it in newly low-cost Asian countries.
