The historically high Foreign Direct Investment inflows into China has been one of the principal drivers of economic growth, developing China into the world’s second largest economy by nominal Gross Domestic Product (Chung & Bruton, 2008; Worldbank, 2017). The Chinese business context, which is considered challenging by investing European companies, is undergoing structural reform, complicating the determination to perform FDI (EKN, 2016; EU CoC, 2016). The contemplated research examines the above through an analysis of the seminal literature from Strategic Decision-Making Theory, Market Entry Theory and Foreign Direct Investment Theory. An attempt to construct a new conceptual model or framework that better integrates theory with praxis is the ultimate goal of the research. In particular, the research will examine the impact of determinants of the strategic decision-making process on market entry by Dutch companies through a triangulation research approach including: a literature review, content analysis of government policy and interviewing of selected individuals from Dutch companies’, (semi-)government, China-based Chambers of Commerce.

Youth unemployment is a global phenomenon that presents a threat to world peace (Cray et al., 2011). In 2014 the unemployment rate in Nigeria for youth averaged 17.5% (WB, 2016). In 2006, in response to the problem of youth unemployment, the Nigerian government mandated that all polytechnics in the federation establish the CED to impart entrepreneurship skills and knowledge to students for self-reliance. Entrepreneurship is considered a pivotal element of economic growth and development; and through the creation of SMEs, employment opportunities are created (Chidiebere, Iloanya, & Udunze, 2014). The contemplated research will examine measures through the analysis of theories on entrepreneurship, peace, social justice, poverty reduction and Austrian economics. A new conceptual model or framework that better integrates theory with praxis will be constructed. The research will investigate the effectiveness of entrepreneurship development centres in Nigerian polytechnics, specifically, their potential to reduce youth unemployment rates in the country.
