The Locational Strategies of Investment in the UK by MNEs from Developing Countries
AbstractThe 1980s and early 1990s have witnessed the proliferation of multinational enterprises from developing countries (MEDCs), which are also becoming more significant players in the industries in which they participate. In this paper we identify and examine the locational characteristics of these firms in the UK. It also assesses how these locational characteristics of MEDCs reflect those identified in the literature, how they compare with local UK firms and how they relate to multinationals from industrialised countries (MEICs). The results on MEDCs? locational characteristics in the UK support the literature on other empirical results, differ from UK firms? locational characteristics and are similar to some of the factors that determine the choice of location of MEICs.
