Neo-classical Economics assumed that there is no transaction cost. The relationships of a firm in a domestic network can be used as bridges to other networks in other countries e. Undoubtedly, this stream of research has enhanced understanding of the importance of managerial elements in affecting exporting activities. By appreciating and understanding different beliefs, values, behaviors and business strategies of a variety of companies within other countries, entrepreneurs will be able to internationalize successfully. Such bridges can be important both in the initial steps abroad and in the subsequent entry of new markets.
Uppsala Model of Internationalization The Uppsala model seeks to explain how firms gradually intensify their activities in foreign markets. Suggests that a model incorporating the key elements of each approach could present a more realistic and comprehensive picture of the market entry decision. Coase's career in economics came as a result of some odd circumstances. Discussion Internationalization is a matter of committed decision-making, in which an organization tries to diagnose and use opportunities in target markets on the basis of realistic evaluation of internal strengths and weaknesses in order to gain presence in other countries. Whitelock model Whitelock Model is an attempted integration of the key elements of each theory that is depicted in. While the theoretical development and empirical studies on exchange transaction modality to international markets have been impressing, relatively few researchers have focused on the process by which firms select where or with whom the transactions should be performed.
Experimental Methodology The study was based on the development of a self-administered survey. Journal of global information management, 13 3 : 33.

Over the years, other researchers have found shortcomings in the generic Uppsala model of 1977, namely, that companies do not follow the Uppsala model Coudounaris, 1984 , that the model is too deterministic Reid, 1983;Turnbull, 1987 or that it does not take into account interdependencies between different country markets Johanson and Mattsson, 1986. There is also another point - information asymmetry. Policing and enforcement costs are the costs of making sure the other party sticks to the terms of the contract, and taking appropriate action often through the legal system if this turns out not to be the case.

Bargaining costs are the costs required to come to an acceptable agreement with the other party to the transaction, drawing up an appropriate contract, etc. Pharmaceutical marketing context As mentioned previously, the quality of pharmaceutical marketing is entirely different from that of other products. There are several internationalization theories which try to explain why there are international activities. A second set of factors was of a more subjective nature, con- taining characteristics associated with the perceptions, atti- tudes, and behavior of the decision maker s.
