The dissertation presents an increasing important role the cross-border mergers and acquisitions (M&As), which dominates the foreign direct investment (FDI), plays in economic growth, technology advance and national welfare through the world. I hope the research fills some blank in the area of cross-border M&As and market competition, the internationalization of capital market and government policy-making and values much theoretically to these areas. With the theory of FDI, transaction costs and industrial organization, and modern economics analysis approaches and tools, I attempt to explain the developing facts of cross-border M&As in order to converge the practice and theory.The dissertation is organized as following: part I discusses the determinants and the effect on market structure of cross-border M&As; part II demonstrates the interrelation of cross-border M&As and capital market internationalization and relevant government's policy change.

Chapter I studies the entry alternative of cross-border M&As and transnational corporations(TNCs), especially the determinants of the choice between M&As and Greenfield investment when TNCs enter host countries. Chapter II analyzes the interrelationship between cross-border M&As and market structure theoretically and empirically from the perspective of M&As and market centralization, entry barrier, product differentiation, economy of scale and scope, the latter four components making up of market structure in industrial organization theory. Part II involves five chapters.

With empirical proof on several countries I analyze the cross-border M&As regulation and policy-making. I assess the policy changes of Chinese government M&As regulation since the increasing foreign M&As in the 1990s; put forward the strategic blueprint of policy-making about foreign M&As of domestic enterprises and domestic ones overseas M&As. Chapter VI researches the major changes of regulation policy on cross-border M&As in an opening economy and emphasizes the regulation policy keystone of M&As in capital market and its tendency during capital market internationalization.
