TitleWorld Investment Report. 2000: Cross-Border Mergers and Acquisitions and Development
Imprint Geneva, United Nations. 2000
Descript xxviii, 337 p. : charts, graphs, tables


Summary: The World Investment Report 2000 is the tenth volume of the leading publication on global trends and developments relating to foreign direct investment (FDI) and transnational corporations (TNCs). The report highlights important sectoral and geographical changes in the pattern of FDI, with particular focus on developing countries. WIR 2000 focuses specifically on the growing role of cross-border mergers and acquisitions (M&As) in worldwide FDI. While cross-border M&As have been prevalent in developed countries for some time, they have become increasingly important also in developing countries and economies in transition. Based on unique data, WIR 2000 analyzes the driving forces behind the expansion of cross-border M&As, their impact on corporate performance as well as on host country development, particularly as compared with greenfield investment as a mode of FDI entry, and presents various policy options. This year WIR again presents the list of the largest transnational corporations of the world, of developing countries and of Central Europe. As in the past ten years, the Report offers useful empirical information and policy analysis for decision makers in government and business and to researchers. [English only]
