R&D related foreign direct investments represent a powerful mechanism for cross-border knowledge sharing that can stimulate the process of technological catch-up. However, low-income countries and smaller middle-income countries remain largely excluded from this kind of global flows of knowledge. In this chapter, we discuss the motivations and implications of this type of FDI for low and middle income countries, building on a critical review of the existing literature and analyse the trajectory ...

The local sourcing of intermediate products is one the main channels for foreign direct investment (FDI) spillovers. This paper investigates whether and how participation and positioning in the global value chains (GVCs) of host countries is associated to local sourcing by foreign investors. Matching two firm-level data sets on 19 Sub-Saharan African countries and Vietnam to country-sector level measures of GVC involvement, we find that more intense GVC participation and upstream specialization ...

Do emerging-market multinational enterprises (EMNEs) innovate after they have acquired advanced countries’ innovative firms and have invested in regions with high innovative capacity? Do EMNEs’ absorptive capacity and status positively moderate the relationship between their post-deal innovative output and the innovative capacity of the target firm and/or region? We explore these questions by analyzing the universe of cross-border acquisitions accomplished by Chinese and Indian medium to high-te...

This paper compares the productivity ranking of alternative modes of internationalization for a panel of Italian manufacturing firms that are (i) purely domestic or internationally engaged in (ii) exports, (iii) foreign sourcing and (iv) foreign direct investment. By using consistent tests of stochastic dominance of first and second order, as well as by estimating productivity premia across firms for all strategies, we aim at investigating whether and to what extent these modes of firm's entry i...

Purpose The purpose of this paper is to assess whether offshoring strategies are able to substantially enhance firms’ international competitiveness in terms of productivity, innovativeness and skill composition for a panel of Italian manufacturing firms. Design/methodology/approach A set of hypotheses derived from the extant literature is tested on data from balance sheets and qualitative surveys of about 4,000 Italian firms. The methodology used is a propensity score matching estimator and diff...

Since 2013, China is the third largest foreign investor in the world and Europe is a major destination for Chinese investing firms, especially the largest European economies where the great majority of their investments are concentrated. In this chapter, we provide a comprehensive map of Chinese Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) in Europe, taking into account their distribution by country, sector, entry-mode and business activity. The empirical analysis relies on firm-level data compiled from div...

The African continent represents the new frontier of global investment flows. The size and geographical coverage of FDI in the continent are steadily increasing with a rather peculiar balance of ‘old’ investors (from OECD countries) and ‘new’ ones (from emerging economies). The goal of this chapter is twofold. First, we discuss the relative importance of traditional OECD investors and ‘new’ investors from BRICS from a macro-level perspective. Second, we use an original micro-level data (African ...
