Exports of Manufactures by Newly Industrialising Countries

Industrialising Countries A Survey of Recent Trends Sanjaya Lall There is now a large literature on the growth of manufactured exports by the less developed countries (LDCs), especially on the performance of the industrially more advanced, i e, the newly-industrialising countries (NICs). This paper reviews the literature and presents some data on the recent experience. There is so much written on this subject, however, that this survey cannot hope to be exhaustive. It concentrates on certain themes that are likely to be of direct interest to policy-makers and students, mainly with reference to works, published and unpublished, that have appeared in the past five years or so.

Theories of Direct Private Foreign Investment and Multinational Behaviour

and Multinational Behaviour Sanjaya Lall This paper is intended to provide a summary and a synthesis of recent theories of foreign investment in the manufacturing sector and of explanations of the growth of multinational companies (MNCs). Since the field of foreign investment is heavily dominated by MNCs, a realistic explanation of one necessarily serves in great part as an explanation of the other. An attempt is made, wherever possible, to draw a distinction between "multinationals" proper, defined as the very large direct investors which have subsidiaries in several countries, and "other" foreign investors, smaller and less widespread.

The pharmaceutical industry is one of the most 'multinational' of modern manufacturing industries; the firms which dominate it in the developed countries also operate in almost every less-developed country outside the socialist bloc.

Less-Developed Countries and Private Foreign Investment

Less-Developed Countries and Private Foreign Investment THIS paper is partly a review of an important new work by G L Reuber and associates on the economics of private foreign manufacturing investment in less-developed countries (LDCs),1 and partly an attempt to examine some of the larger issues facing the study of such investment. Reuber's book is an interesting and provocative one, and in this essay I shall concentrate on the first 250 pages which contain the analytical sections, and which constitute a vigorous defence of foreign investment in LDCs. The book also contains 5 appendices on its structure and distribution, the characteristics of selected projects, the interview procedure and the sources and definitions of the data. The analysis is based on published and unpublished information as well as on direct interviews with about 80 investing firms, and claims to be a major contribution to our knowledge in this field.
