Source: Unctad, , p. Although the data show a real increase of the international transactions of EMNCs, their TNI is still lower than the index of MNCs from developed countries, as can be observed in the table below. Comparing the foreign sales, foreign assets, and foreign employment in the total of the largest MNCs in developed and developing countries, EMNCs have a lower TNI, and have been more sensitive to the effects of the global crisis, reducing their international transactions between and , in the meanwhile MNCs from developed countries have registered a positive variation, and, therefore, increased their foreign assets, foreign employment and foreign sales of their subsidiaries worldwide see tables 4 and 5.
On the other hand, considering the period before the global crisis, EMNCs have improved the TNI, increasing their international transaction and their share in the total assets and sales. Source: Unctad, World Investment Report, different years. However, there are differences among developing countries. Since the beginning of the literature about MNCs, a strong economic focus was adopted to explain how firms place their assets abroad.
Hymer considers onerous to operate in foreign market, so the firm should own competitive advantages to be exploited over market imperfections. Williamson focused his analysis on comparing the costs of trading a product with foreign markets and producing this same product abroad in order to evaluate which modality would imply on lower costs, being, this way, more attractive to the firm. Buckley and Casson determined that the company would perform FDI according to two kinds of advantages: ownership advantages and localization advantages.
The Eclectic Paradigm, also known as the OLI Theory, is the result of an attempt made by John Dunning to integrate in one single model the several different scopes contained in the International Business literature in order to explain the why, where and how of the international expansion of firms. For two decades the model remained the dominant analytical basis of most of empirical studies about determinants of FDI.
The ownership advantages are inherent to the company and crucial to the internationalization, because they are a matter of differentiation among firms, they are related to the intangible assets and the position conquered by the firm, such as innovation capacity, qualified labor and financial status that allows it to compete in foreign markets. Assuming that condition 1 is satisfied, the extent to which the enterprises perceives it to be in its interest to add to its O advantages rather than to sell them, or their right of use, to independent foreign firms.
These advantages are called market internalisation I advantages. The internalization advantages come from the benefits of the firm to use its own assets to produce abroad its products instead of allowing others to produce or distribute them, which might contribute to reducing exchange costs, information property, uncertainty diminish, and more control over supply, markets, contracts and business.
In other words, internalization advantages are the outcome between the mix of ownership and location advantages. Assuming, that conditions 1 and 2 are satisfied, the extent to which the global interests of the enterprises are served by creating, accessing or utilising, its O advantages in a foreign location. The location advantages are host-market specific aspects that turn such location positive for the firm to settle a production plant in it, especially regarding transportation, access to labor force, cultural barriers and market potential.
Given the configuration of the ownership, location and internalisation OLI advantages facing a particular firm, the extent to which a firm believes that foreign production is consistent with the long term objectives of its stakeholders and institutions underpinning its managerial and organizational strategy.
Based on the four sets of advantages, Dunning also suggested, based on the motivation of MNCs, four different types o FDI projects: the market-seeking projects, the performance seeking projects, the resource-seeking projects and the asset-seeking projects. The IDP model determines that there are five different development levels among countries, where they let being only a FDI destination to perform FDI as they progress to these levels. Stage 1 is related to countries with limited location advantages to attract FDI, so the role of governmental measures is important to turn the economy attractive to foreign investors.
Markets on Stage 2 have a larger extent of location advantages, which turn them a attractive destination of FDI. The stage three describes the development of this process and shows that the enlargement of the activities of foreign firms in the host country will contribute, through spillover effects and technology transfer, to create and increments the ownership advantages by local firms, turning them more prone to perform FDI, especially on less-developed markets.
On Stage 4, firms from the home market stop being predominantly FDI receivers to be investors, and when they achieve the final level, Stage 5, their strategies will be more influenced according to their own resources and capabilities and less by governmental measures. This process contributed largely to stimulate the creation and expansion of MNC from developing countries.
Due to the growing importance of developing countries MNCs DMNCs in the current world economy, their role in the International Business Literature has grown in importance in the same pace. The second perspective is the institutional perspective, which focused on how institutions from home and host countries of FDI affect the international expansion of firms.
The third perspective is more related to studies that have addressed differences and similarities of the internationalization processes of MNCs from countries with different level of development Developed and developing economies. While the first perspective is, in large part, based on the economic theory of FDI, and specifically, the contributions of Hymer , Bukley and Casson , and Dunning , The second perspective introduced insights and concepts of the neo-institutionalism to explain the phenomena of MNCs.
The third perspective, including some contributions of the behavioral approaches Uppsala , focused more on how EMNCs create ownership advantages, and how they overcome the liability of foreignness. It is believed that developing countries MNCs share some common characteristics, such as the easy access to natural resources BCG, and the comparative advantages related to the factor endowment resources in their home countries, that allow them to be internationally competitive due to their low prices Pangarkar and Lim, ; Enderwick, Cuervo-Cazurra argues that the access to technology is the main reason for firms to perform FDI in developed countries.
Gammeltoft, et al also highlight the extent in which the home market characteristics affect the competences from developing countries MNCs, stating that institutions also play a vital role, but there are evidences that these firms are moving on and acquiring competences of their own, making them achieve a higher level of competitiveness and climbing on the IDP Model stages Goldstein and Pusterla, MNCs with high international integration will choose a global strategy, in the case of low local responsiveness, or a transnational strategy, in the case of high local responsiveness.
But in the case of low international integration, the firm will choose an international strategy, in the case of low local responsiveness, or a multi-domestic strategy, in the case of high local responsiveness. Factors like GDP, exchange rate, trade and inflation, with the aim to estimate the effects of the market size, trade openness, macroeconomic stability, and the quality of institutional governance.
Bae and Hwang, ; Thomas and Grosse, ; Frenkel et al. Results of empirical studies have shown opposite effects. On the other hand, the interest rate has revealed to present a negative relation to the outward FDI Bae and Hwang, ; Thomas and Grosse, ; Kyrkilis and Pantelidis, , The relationship between FDI and both trade and exchange rate is also uncertain.
The outward FDI may replace trade on the case of market-seeking projects, but cases of efficiency-seeking or resource-seeking projects may create an intra-firm trade Swenson, ; Seo and Suh, A high exchange rate devaluated currency may be positive for firms willing to maximize their profits in the home market, a feature from market-seeking projects, while a low exchange rate evaluated currency will reduce production costs, which is common in the cases of performance-seeking projects Chen et al.
Just recently there were some studies trying to combine non-traditional variables with the traditional ones. Amal et al. The economic freedom was also negative to the outward FDI for Kapuria-Foreman , leading the author to argue that this variable need to be disaggregated to function properly, being its most relevant index the property rights. Chitoor et al. Some other empirical evidences from structural changes boosting the outward FDI from developing countries are the governmental regulations to promote outward FDI in China Rasiah et al.
The FDI theory has traditionally seen the macroeconomic variables as the country of origin elements responsible for the international performance of MNCs. Bevan et al. Given the institutions importance on improving markets efficiency, Peng et al. The authors describe institutions as structures responsible for the social behavior interaction, managing transactions on politics such as corruption and transparency , law such as economic freedom and regulatory regime and social such as ethical rules and business climate.
McMillan also consider that institutions play a more important role on developing economies, since the developing markets poor function may be a sign of poor institutions, restricting local firms, since institutions are relevant over strategies implementation and competitive advantage development by local firms.
But, in the other hand, there are authors like Witt and Lewin that pointed out the possibility of a negative institutional scenario also having positive impact over the FDI, since companies may feel encouraged to operate across borders to run away from some home market restrictions.
The BCG believes that the experience of developing business on negative institutional scenarios has implied on significant competitive advantages for MNCs from developing economies, such as creative, innovative and flexible processes that helped them to take fast and efficient decisions. Luo et al called such behavior as institutional escapism, and affirm that both of the situations approached by the literature co-exist and boost the international engagement of MNCs from developing countries, but their effects are different among firms and industries.
Whereas firms do seek foreign markets to obtain access to technology and knowledge which are not available at their home market, public policies are also important to neutralize intrinsic competitive disadvantages from DMNCs Luo et al. The literature on International Business IB showed that foreign firms face different barriers that exist because of different levels of geographic distance, psychological, cultural and institutional relationship between the country of origin and host countries of their investments Zaheer, ; Nachum, , the barriers are often called "Liability of foreignness LOF.
According to Madhok , LOF occurs for several reasons:. Foreign companies have disadvantages related to the low level of knowledge about host markets of their investments;. Secondly, companies must adapt their ownership advantages to different cultural and institutional environments, which should generate different costs and barriers that domestic firms do not have; and.
On the other hand, the following features regarding the internationalization patterns between developed and emerging economies have been pointed out in the literature:. EMNCs are based in countries with low average income per capita, and presenting weak institutional infrastructure;. EMNCs present limited ownership advantages, such as technology, brand when developing international operations. They are late comers Ramamurti and Singh, , following apparently different paths in terms of countries of destination of their investments.
They use to invest in other emerging countries, but also in developed countries Sirkin et al, , acquiring other companies as part of their internationalization strategy UNCTAD, ; Gubbi, et al, Cuervo-Cazurra classified the MNCs from emerging countries as those that seek to develop ownership advantages abroad and those that aim on exploring abroad the advantages acquired in their domestic market.
To overcome the liability of foreignness, measured as the cost of doing business abroad Zaheer, and their disadvantage as latecomers, EMNCs may opt for an audacious international strategy to quickly establish their reputation among foreign customers, such as the acquisition of strategic assets and already established brands Luo and Tung, ; Bonaglia, Goldsten and Matthews, That means that the investments of EMNCs will act as a springboard to address firm-specific disadvantages via international acquisitions of new assets.
Several studies about MNCs from developed countries have discussed different issues, most of them related to the determinants and patterns of their strategies, and also the relationship between the degree of internationalization and their performance. Currently, researchers understand that MNCs seek for complementary assets abroad to enlarge their ownership advantages Serapio and Dalton, ; Hayashi and Serapio, , which means that EMNCs are not the only ones to develop ownership advantages abroad.
In terms of competitiveness assets, it is believed that firms from developed countries have an inherent advantage over firms from emerging countries, which is the effect of the country of origin stereotype over its international branding. Although there are different standards between MNCs, studies have shown that both emerging MNCs and MNCs from advanced countries seek to develop complementary strategies to expand their ownership advantages Hayashi and Serapio, They used to follow an incremental strategy of internationalization, based on the psychic distance as determinant factor for market selection in the early stages, in particular, which means, that the process of gradually increasing commitment would still be expected to be the norm Dunning and Lundan, There are also evidences about the role of social networks as a key factor of learning, developing new markets, and managing disadvantages related to the LOF.
Results from different empirical studies suggest that an incremental behavior is also a feature from the internationalization of EMNCs Pillania, , and the psychic distance also affects the market selection process, even though it does not determine alone, for example, the foreign direct investment destination Li, Regarding the extent to which a firm will depend mostly on ownership, internalization and locational advantages to internationalize its activities, Li and Lee and Slater suggest an adaptation for the specific case of EMNCs; this is because these firms often end up developing ownership advantages on foreign markets, mostly in developed countries, due to better access of technology and knowledge.
An analysis of the International Business literature shows that due to the complexity of the phenomena of Multinational Companies from developing economies, scholars have been using more eclectic approaches to investigate the process of internationalization of firms from countries of different levels of development.
However, although some authors have suggested new theories of EMNCs, it seems that the eclectic paradigm Dunning, is still a powerful framework for a multi-perspective approach, that take under account factors related to country and firm advantages. Thus, the OLI paradigm provides a general theoretical framework for the understanding of the FDI determinants from emerging economies.
The main advantages of the framework lie in the fact that it allows to integrate two main analytical dimensions; the dimension that focuses on the country specific advantages CSA , and the dimension that considers the firm-specific advantages FSA. Rugman has emphasized the importance of the two dimensions and their interaction for the analysis of MNCs strategies.
Therefore, in the case of emerging economies, there are different and specific reasons for the successful internationalization of their firms. Different authors have investigated the differences in the path and pattern between EMNCs and MNCs from developed countries Cuervo-Cazura, , , suggesting a higher level of complexity, and a need for a more multi-approach to analyze their strategies and determinants.
The CSA are related to the location advantages and how they contribute to international competitiveness of firms. Although the CSA can be related to the L-advantages, the concept is however different. The Home Location advantages are home-market specific assets that turn such location positive for the firm to create, or to enlarge its ownership advantages, especially, regarding factor endowments, economic performance and institutional quality.
Thus, the country specific advantages CSA are related to home and host country factors. It means that to understand the patterns and determinants of OFDI it is recommended to take under account, in large scale, the economic and institutional changes in the home country, that shape the strategy of growth and competitiveness of the firm on global level. On the other hand, to address FDI determinants, o host county perspective is also relevant, in that sense that the changes and the configuration of market and competition affect the strategy of the firm in the host country.
The host country perspective provides relevant insights for the understanding of how the MNC adapt, adjust and manage the cultural, economic and institutional differences between home and host country. Thus, FSA are inherent to the company and crucial to the internationalization, because they are a matter of differentiation among firms, they are related to the intangible assets and the position conquered by the firm, such as innovation capacity, qualified labor and financial status that allows it to compete in foreign markets.
In the attempt to understand the pattern and path of the international expansion of MNCs from emerging economies, we present and discuss some few propositions. Proposition 1: A MNC from a emerging country, with a short period of experience of internationalization and limited ownership advantages will be influenced more likely by psychic distance factors when internationalizing into new markets. MNCs from developed countries, with specific ownership advantages, legitimacy that is related to the advantages of the home market, high accumulated knowledge about processes of entering into foreign markets, and inserted in networks relationships worldwide will reduce the costs and disadvantages related to the liability of foreignness.
On the other hand, EMNC, with a short period of experience of internationalization and limited ownership advantages will be influenced more likely by psychic distance factors when internationalizing into new markets. In this case, due to their limited technological and managerial capabilities, EMNCs are more likely to face higher costs to manage the LOF in culturally distant market, or in not stable institutional environments, which may concentrate their investment projects in regionally or culturally closed host countries.
Proposition 2: MNCs from advanced economies, due to their international experiences, accumulated knowledge about foreign markets, and learning abilities, are better than EMNCs at coping with weak institutional environments. The internationalization of the firm will depend, not only on the interaction between ownership, location and internalization advantages, as discussed in the eclectic paradigm, but also including variables from the institutional approach.
It means that introducing factors related to the institutional environment, in which firms operate and develop their resources and capabilities, may contribute to explain how location and ownership advantages interact; creating the conditions to overcome the disadvantages to be acting in a foreign market. Company from a emerging country, by learning to operate in an unstable institutional environment may acquire a competitive advantage that makes the firm to have a sort of ability in working in such environments, when firms from developed countries, have more difficulties to operate in them.
However, due to accumulated knowledge in foreign markets, and business experiences in different cultural environments may provide the MNC from advanced economies a better advantage to manage their value-added activities in countries presenting weak institutional arrangements; this is a way to overcome the liability of foreignness. A company from an emerging country, however, with reduced ownership advantages, and limited experiences and knowledge in international management presents a reduced capability to cope with low institutional environment, particularly in culturally distant countries.
Emerging countries are not homogeneous, not culturally, and less then in terms of their institutional makeup. The latter strategy, for example, will mean that a MNC will be looking for complementary assets abroad to enlarge its ownership advantages Hayashi and Serapio, ; Serapio and Dalton, MNCs from developed economies are more prompt to develop different strategies in the same host market, which mean that they will be implementing different investment programs, according to the changes of the economic and institutional environments, and to the relationships to their network and market partners.

Here are some additional foreign direct investment advantages and disadvantages to take a look at today. It provides local economic benefits in multiple locations. The companies or individuals that participate in FDI can stimulate community economic growth on the local level for their headquarters or home. Profits are often reinvested into workers or increasing organizational opportunities, which can create new jobs, which then creates new FDI opportunities.
The investments do the same for the home market of the foreign organization as well. It makes international trade easier to complete. Many countries have import tariffs that must be paid for goods and services. Through FDI, it becomes possible to limit or eliminate these tariffs since a minimum stake in a foreign organization occurs.
That gives the local business more control over the market while maintaining price competition. Foreign income can increase. Many foreign markets have employees working at wages that would be considered poverty wages in the United States.
With FDI, foreign income levels can increase. Worker wages increase. That creates new resources that can help communities to begin growing. It improves human resources. Businesses are successful because humans have expertise. In the under-developed and developing world, human skills are limited to basic labor, agricultural work, and other entry-level skills. Foreign direct investment creates educational opportunities so that people can improve their personal skill base.
With better skills, higher wages can be earned. Greater productivity levels are achieved. The company benefits, as does the individual, and that trickles down to each community. It allows your money to work harder for you. To encourage FDI, many governments have placed tax incentives on this type of investment. These incentives make it easier to accomplish goals because the money involved can be directed toward resources instead of government coffers.
At the same time, the gap between cost and revenue is reduced, providing more opportunities to find profit streams. It provides a foreign company with needed experience. Investors bring more than money to an FDI relationship. They can also bring their personal experiences within a specific industry. For the foreign company, such an investment can create an immediate surge in productivity.
Investments can also provide better facilities for the foreign organization, better equipment assets, and improved vendor access if contact access from the investor is permitted in the relationship. It creates new opportunities for workers. Workers who are employed by the investing company can travel overseas and experience new cultures and ideas. That can make them more productive at home.
Foreign workers have better access to the best practices that have been developed, which helps them to create new opportunities as well. The government is also relaxing FDI norms in other sectors for foreign investors to invest. FDI in.

Com Berhad was in stable position of probability ratios and the company was able to generate profits within a specified. Nowadays, the business volume of tourism can be said to be equals to or even surpasses the business volume of food products, automobiles or oil exports.
Tourism plays an important role in almost every country due to it has a greater impact on the development of country economy. The main benefits of tourism are creating extra money for national income and creating more career opportunities for locals. One of the easiest benefits to determine is the career opportunities that the tourism brings. Availability of these kind of resources especially minerals, agriculture product and raw material become an important determinant of FDI for host country.
Malaysia, on the other hand, a medium-size country, having upper middle income developing economy, although it is largely urbanized but the state continues to develop their cultural sectors actively. This is aided well by its rich natural resources. In addition, Malaysia is in condition where it has a political stability which is highly attractive to foreign investment.
Hence, FDI appears to a key driver underlying the strong growth performance experienced by the Malaysian economy. Over the decades, Singapore's exports composition has evolved from labour-intensive to high value-added products, such as chemicals, electronics and even to biomedical. Singapore is also an important financial center.
It is a leading foreign direct investment recipient due to its status of one of the freest, most competitive, most business-friendly economies in the world. Singapore's economic growth is the results of proper macroeconomic policies aimed at maintaining a conducive environment for long-term investment in the economy. Monetary policy Since , monetary policy in Singapore centered on the exchange rate and controlling inflation. That partnership was thought as an opportunity to grow for that company mentioned.
One professor suggests three general advantages of FDI on capital, these are ; 1 company presidents have less risk with the help of free flow of capital around the world. With the different financial instruments, president can distribute the risk. Foreign direct investment FDI is the most way entered into a market of foreign country, it is because FDI is believed to be stable and easier to service than bank credit. FDI are usually on long term economic activities in which the return profit only occur when the project earns profit.
Foreign direct investment FDI has been considered as a significant source for continuous growth, enhancing exports and create jobs in developing countries. There are many developing countries try to establish an environment in order to think over all the benefit of attracting foreign investors such as South Africa.
FDI can benefit a country like South Africa, not only by complementary investment but also can create jobs, transfer technology, raising competiveness and others Xolani The paper will use PEST political environment, economic environment.

One can now unambiguously call the process of liberalization and reforms a success story. Due to its philosophy of Gradualism in unbundling regulations and controls, and in unleashing the forces of market mechanism, economic reforms in India have been without any traumatic after effects.
Indian model of gradualism has in fact become role model for the other emerging market economies. Research Paper Foreign Direct Investment should be allowed in India in order to complete the cycle of Globalization and integration of Markets across the globe as well as to benefit India.
Foreign Direct Investment refers to the type of investment into a country that is characterized by the inflow of funds from a foreign source that can be in the form of ownership such as stocks, bonds, infrastructural presence, etc. FDI is defined as the net inflows of investment to acquire a management interest 10 percent or more of voting stock in an enterprise operating in an economy other than that of the investor. Foreign Institutional Investors are those institutions that invest directly through the financial markets of a country and not through the physical presence.

This also induces the local players in the market to better their product quality as well as make their prices more competitive.
Competition can be positive as well as negative on an economy. When the local players are unable to keep up with the foreign firms, it can lead to the local players going out of business.
