Abstract

This contribution explores some aspects of the strategic integration of inward investing companies within the EC as these organisations have adjusted to the competitive environment of the last decade and as they have progressively come to terms with an integrated market. Attention is drawn to some of the propositions which have emerged about the processes of adjustment which might be expected to occur within multinational firm networks and to the limited empirical evidence which exists to allow these to be tested. Subsequent concentration is on the analysis of a set of UK data based on an empirical study of MNE affiliates from the USA and Continental Europe which was undertaken by the authors on behalf of the Department of Trade and Industry (Hood and Young, 1983). In the final section some conclusions are drawn and policy implications suggested
