The academic literature (in the field of international business, but not exclusively), as well as (all kind of) global statistics agree and emphasize more and more on the role and contribution of the multinational enterprises (MNEs) within the global economic context – as key sources for development and competitiveness. The realities of nowadays and the predictable outlooks for tomorrow confirm these analysis on one hand, and raise new challenges (opportunities and threats) on the other – the emergence of multinationals from emerging countries being just one of them. The paper aims to schematically capture in just one picture all the above mentioned transformations and evolutions that mark the present and influence the future of MNEs in terms of their contribution to global development and competitiveness.
