MNEs from Emerging Markets: New Players in the World FDI Market

With its Emerging Markets Global Players project, the Vale Columbia Center on Sustainable International Investment is laying the groundwork for further research on investors from non-traditional home countries. Although outward FDI from emerging markets is seen by many as being mainly associated with investments from Brazil, the Russian Federation, India, and the People‘s Republic of China (the BRICs), firms from other developing and transition economies have also been venturing abroad in significant numbers. Thus, this volume also covers the major MNEs from such countries as Argentina, Israel, Mexico, the Republic of Korea, Slovenia, and Turkey. The fact that firms from these countries are even establishing themselves in developed countries and are often using acquisitions to do so has in certain cases resulted in negative policy reactions in host countries. This makes a better understanding of these new global players even more important. The Center‘s project, and hence this volume, provides valuable information about the leading MNEs from emerging markets. Researchers, policy makers and anyone interested in this new phenomenon, be they from emerging markets or host countries, should therefore appreciate it that this information is made available in consolidated form in this volume. In provides comparative and longitudinal data that help to improve our empirical knowledge, facilitate theoretical insights and assist policy analyses.
