First published in 1999, this volume recognised how widespread attention has been given to charting how the global rise in investment flows has caused numerous changes in the operation of economies – such as the globalisation of production and increasing international economic interdependency. Less research has been made on the role of government policy in promoting FDI. This book, based on a report for the OECD Development Centre, examines the rising competition between European governments to attract mobile investment projects and its impact on the use of different policy areas to influence FDI decisions.
