The Direct Foreign Investments Effects on Workforce


  • Popa Lucia-Ramona

    () (“Constantin Brancoveanu” University of Pitesti)


The sustainability and growth of employment provided by foreign affiliates vary considerably among host developing countries, depending upon whether foreign affiliate activities are upgraded as labour market conditions and the structure of domestic and foreign demand change over time. The prospects for such upgrading are high if the domestic educational and skills building systems and TNCs’ own contributions to training and human resource development continuously improve the skills and capacities of workers so that they are able to adapt to higher technology intensities and changes in tasks assigned to them in production.
