Screening Foreign Direct Investment in LDCs: Empirical findings of the Colombian case (1967-1975)
AbstractThis article presents an empirical study of foreign investment board and of its real decision-making process. The analysis, based on more than 200 interviews of government officials and company executives and on a study of 25 foreign investment proposals reveals the existence of a large gap between screening regulations and administrative facilities; a series of propositions offered to explain this gap. The article concludes by giving an assessment of the Colombian foreign investment screening process and by suggesting implications for the MNC negotiation strategy.© 1978 JIBS.
