Abstract

BRAND S., HILL S. and MUNDAY M. (2000) Assessing the impacts of foreign manufacturing on regional economies: the cases of Wales, Scotland and the West Midlands, Reg. Studies 34, 343-355. This paper examines the direct and indirect contributions made by foreign manufacturing companies to the regional economies of Wales, Scotland and the West Midlands. Survey data derived from foreign manufacturers in each region were used in conjunction with regional input-output tables to assess the comparative contributions of defined foreign and domestically owned sectors to regional value added. The analyses are a starting point for the more accurate targeting of regional resources to industry sectors in the respective regional economies. BRAND S., HILLS S. et MUNDAY M.
