Multinational enterprises (MNEs) represent both cause and result of the new economic geography of globalization. Thus, the dynamics and trends of the world’s most influential MNEs contribute decisively to the new global architecture and to the economic development, being influenced, at their turn, by these processes of continuous reconfiguration and evolution that take place on the global arena. The paper proposes a comparative (in space) and historical (in time) analysis of the most well known global rankings of the multinational enterprises – Fortune Global 500 on one hand, and The world's top 100 non-financial TNCs, ranked by foreign assets and Top 100 non-financial TNCs from developing and transition economies ranked by foreign assets (classifications made by UNCTAD), on the other hand.
