Marketing a country : promotion as a tool for attracting foreign investment by Louis T Wells( )

23 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study is the revised edition of the same title "Marketing a Country: Promotion as a Tool for Attracting Foreign Investment" (Report No. 8649), which was published ten years ago. The study is about the promotional techniques and structures that countries employ in their competition to attract foreign direct investment. The basic premises of the book have stood the test of a decade. However, investment promotion is a constantly evolving field. The original monograph described three basic investment promotion techniques: image building, investment generation, and investor services. A fourth technique, policy advocacy, is also recommended to add to the mandate of investment promotion agenda. Additionally, promotional activities seem to be growing outside the bounds of the narrowly defined investment-promotion agency. A few of the agencies are becoming international, directly or through alliances

Third World multinationals : the rise of foreign investment from developing countries by Louis T Wells( Book )

20 editions published between 1983 and 2005 in English and held by 861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Marketing a country : promotion as a tool for attracting foreign investment by Louis T Wells( Book )

6 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study is about the promotional techniques and structures that countries employ in their competition to attract foreign direct investment. On the basis of the evidence collected by the authors, it is argued that : 1) different combinations of promotional techniques are useful at different phases of a promotion program; 2) the type of organization responsible for promotion makes a difference in effectiveness; 3) there are various useful ways to evaluate a promotion program; 4) investment promotion appears to have a statistically significant influence on foreign investment flows; and 5) investment promotion programs have proved effective in attracting only certain kinds of investors. Promotional techniques consist of : a) providing information to potential investors; b) creating an attractive image of the country as a place to invest; and c) providing services to prospective investors. However, promotion is only one of several tools available to countries eager to attract foreign investment. Governments can : i) provide tax incentives and grants; ii) provide industrial estates, export processing zones, and other infrastructure; iii) attempt to simplify the bureaucratic procedures facing potential investors; iv) negotiate bilateral tax, trade and investment treaties; and v) attempt to create a favorable environment by guaranteeing repatriation of profits, assuring access to imported components, and promising not to expropriate property without compensation

Conflict or Indifference US Multinationals in a World of Regional Trading Blocs by Louis T Wells( )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and French and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Managers of US multinational corporations generally respond with a "big yawn" to warnings that the world trading system might evolve into a set of protectionist regional blocs.Their lack of fear is justified, since both their past strategies and their more recent, supposedly global strategies have resulted principally in regional systems of production facilities. The gains from manufacturing and trading among more widely dispersed facilities seem lower than the costs of managing such a complex system. As a result, US multinationals' trade in manufactures stays mostly within the region of production, and would be little affected by the emergence of powerful trading blocs.The strategies of most US multinationals would be threatened only if regional blocs restricted foreign investment. This seems unlikely, given the history of regional trade groups, and restrictions on new investment would probably harm Japanese competitors more than US multinationals, which have already established

Multinational companies from emerging economies : composition, conceptualization and direction in the global economy by Andrea E Goldstein( Book )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and Italian and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A number of multinational corporations (MNCs) from developing economies are becoming key players in the global economy. The world's second-largest forgings-maker comes from India; the biggest Nordic insurer was bought by a South African competitor; a Mexican company reinvented the global cement business; and Brazilian restaurant chains sponsor immigration visas for highly-skilled meat carvers to support their American expansions. Understanding these trends and their implications is a priority for academics, policy-makers and business professionals alike. Do these developments vindicate the view that globalization opens up unprecedented opportunities for the South to catch up with the North? Are these "emerging MNCs" any different from their competitors from industrial countries? Does private sector direct engagement herald a new era for South-South cooperation? As this book shows, emerging MNCs must be analyzed in the context of the global political economy."--Page [4] de la couv
