Abstract

Empirical evidence suggests that there are important spillovers as-sociated with the operations of multinational enterprises. Spillovers may occur when less advanced, local firms learn from their more ad-vanced, foreign competitors. But less advanced firms may also actively seek knowledge by investing abroad, so-called "technology sourcing" FDI. The present paper focuses on entry strategies in the presence of technological differences and spillovers.
