Moreover, significant relationship between stereotype and discrimination and the number of local managers in higher management positions also been analyzed. The perceived barriers were examined through an analysis of 317 local managers working in 41 Japanese subsidiaries in Malaysia.

Suggestions to trim down the barriers for career advancement among local managers in Japanese subsidiaries have been discussed.
