Some argue that business groups in emerging could be beneficial for affiliated firms. On the other hand, however, group affiliation could also improve performance.

We test the empirical model using static panel method. Overall, our empirical results do not provide evidence that affiliation with business group could improve performance. However, some business group members perform superior than others.
