|Abstract:||This article investigates the impact of Thailand’s recent bilateral free-trade agreements (FTAs) on the internationalization of Thai multinational enterprises (MNEs). The results highlight the relative importance of internal and external factors in the internationalization of developing country MNEs. The empirical evidence indicated that Thai MNEs judged bilateral FTAs as a critical facilitator of internationalization success. The FTAs facilitated firms’ exports to a certain degree and marginally expedited firms’ international purchasing activities. The influence of FTAs on firms’ foreign investment was not discernible.|
