Foreign direct investment, industrial restructuring and the upgrading of Polish exports
AbstractThis paper poses a central question in relation to the economic-structural effect of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) with Polish manufacturing as an empirical case: how FDI coincides with the technology intensity of Polish exports. A short review of the available literature discusses critically the possibility of establishing one-sided cause-effect relationships between trade and FDI. Subsequently the empirical analysis investigates what role incoming FDI appears to have played in relation to Polish export specialization over the period 1989-1996. Results indicate that FDI has affected positively the technology intensity of the Polish export base.
