This paper discusses different forms of international inter-firm linkages for transfer of technology, capital and other resources, e.g. foreign direct investment, licensing and other contractual modes, strategic alliances and internationalization of developing country enterprises. The paper summarizes recent trends with special reference to developing countries and raises issues involved in developing countries' use of these linkages to acquire technology, obtain market access, and improve the competitiveness of their goods in the world markets. The paper concludes with implications for policies of developing countries
