Part of the book series: Studies in Economic Transition ((SET))

  • 115 Accesses

Abstract

This book intends to assess the role that inward foreign direct investment (FDI) can have on the technological development of the recipient economy, in particular where the recipient country is in the process of economic catching up. This focus positions the analysis in the book between the body of literature testing the existence of economic effects of inward FDI on the one hand, and the management literature concerned with strategies of multinational enterprises in host regions with lower levels of economic development, possibly transition economies, on the other.
