Abstract

In this contribution, we propose to make a comparative study of the factors of attractiveness at work in Hungary and Tunisia during the past decade, which underly cumulated flows of investment, localization, and effects of swarming in industrial fabric. After having recalled the objectives of the restructuring of productive machinery in each country, the first part presents an overview of FDI and the reasons for attraction, in order to further highlight the role of the strategies of insertion into the world economy used by the two economies. The second part tries to assess the positive externalities induced by the durable presence of foreign investors. According to the mode of entry chosen by multinationals, their presence more or less affects the economic restructuring, the technology transfer and foreign trade. Consequently one may question the capacity of both the agents and the recipient institutions to achieve the 'endogeneisation' of the technologies and know-how.
