Book Description

This book analyses the most recent trends in Foreign Direct Investment from the major Asian economies to the EU, focusing on China and Japan’s FDIs in the EU, and Poland in particular. The authors assert that, from a European perspective, there is a strong need for further Asian FDIs into EU nations, which will establish mutual benefits.

This is the first book to explore the outflow of FDI from Asian nations to other countries, especially to EU member states, whereas the extant literature focuses on the inflow of FDI to Asian nations. The authors analyse a multidimensional range of issues, covering macroeconomics, finance, technology, and examine the governments, local authorities and institutions that support such investments. FDI has an instrumental role in the development of host countries. Large scale capital flow becomes a vehicle for providing foreign technology, knowledge, skills and other inputs for the integration with international marketing, production and distribution networks and for improving the economic competitiveness of firms and economic performance of the host country.

The analysis in the book is presented using statistical and econometrical approaches, emphasizing a profound level of investigation, which will be particularly useful for graduate and PhD students of International Economics, Business and Trade.
