This paper examines and analyzes the internationalization of international firms from Malaysia over two time periods of major external economic crises, the Asian financial crisis and the global economic crisis based on a study of four case firms. The findings indicate variations and changes in strategies during early and continued internationalization over the 11 year time studied. These findings and their research implications are examined and discussed.
