About this book


Multinational enterprises have played a crucial role in postwar international economic integration. They have promoted intra-firm trade, technology transfer and internal movements of capital and human resources. This important book provides wide-ranging new evidence on their role in globalising the service sector - especially financial services - in establishing international networks of R & D and in developing trade and investment linkages in Asia. Particular attention is given to the participation of multinationls in management contracts and joint ventures, and the significance of this for host country industrial policy.
