World Investment Report 1995 - Transnational Corporations and Competitiveness

The World Investment Report 1995, focuses on the interaction between the activities that transnational corporations undertake to enhance their competitiveness and the economic performance of countries. Major issues raised in the Report are:

  • How the operations of transnational corporations, as well as their linkages with domestic firms, affect a country´s overall economic performance by providing essential ingredients for their effective participation in the emerging system of international production.
  • The role of transnational corporations in influencing the access of particular countries to global resources and markets, and in facilitating domestic economic restructuring.

This volume also presents policy recommendations designed to allow countries to maximize the benefits for growth and development to be derived from the activities of transnational corporations in an increasingly globalized world economy.
