Summary This book explores the question of why firms based in developing countries have chosen to invest in branches, joint ventures, and wholly owned subsidiaries overseas rather than simply export goods or enter into licensing arrangements abroad. In addition to the cost of transport, tariff barriers, and import restrictions, it identifies a number of less apparent factors, such as the motivations of managers in wanting to go abroad, the meshing of technological levels, ethnic ties, and the desire to protect proprietary processes and competitive advantages
Analysis Foreign investment by multinational companies from developing companies
