International Joint Ventures (IJVs) are one the main models of multinational firms entering foreign markets and China in particular. Despite benefiting from various advantages, many partnerships eventually fail. Accordingly, it is of great importance to study factors that determine success of IJVs. Substantial research has been conducted on success factors in the past, however, it has been mainly concentrated on partners from the USA and Asian countries, a Central European perspective has been mainly neglected. This research attempts to fill this void by identifying key factors that determine success of a Sino-German Joint Venture in China. For this purpose, a conceptual model is developed which will be applied to a single-case study of SAIC Volkswagen. The research revealed that the internal factors of balanced control as well as similar commitment, and the external factor of a well-developed infrastructure are the crucial key success factors from a Sino-German JV perspective. At the end of this study, limitations are discussed and conclusions of the research are drawn.
