Network Analysis to Detect Common Strategies in the Italian Foreign Direct Investment

Author

Abstract

In this paper, using the database ICE-Reprint, the network of Italian firms investing abroad is studied. This analysis focuses on some manufacturing sectors, highlighting the linkages among firms and detecting the key nodes of the system (both in terms of firms and countries of destination). Moreover, through the examination of affiliates' economic activity, different policies of internationalization among leaders emerge.
