    ()

We analyze how foreign presence affects local ?firm productivity. We relax the standard implicit assumption that spillovers are immediate and permanent. We ?find that spillovers are dynamic. Foreign entry of a majority foreign owned fi?rm has a short run negative effect on the productivity of local competitors, which is more than offset by a longer run positive effect. The entry of minority foreign owned fi?rms has an immediate, though short-lived, positive effect on local suppliers. The entry of majority foreign owned fi?rms also improves the productivity of local suppliers, but the effect materializes later and lasts longer.
