Dunning (1993) has stated several categories of motives for entry into international business. These are market seeking, resource seeking, efficiency-seeking and strategic resource seeking motives. To this a fifth category, network seeking motives (Dimitratos & Plakoyiannaki, 2003) have been added for recognizing networks as a significant part of internationalization corresponding to recent research. It is in this connection that the network seeking motive becomes exceptionally important. This can be useful under any kind of entry mode.
