Preface

The World Investment Report, the seventh in this annual series, provides a comprehensive analysis and policy discussion of international investment issues. This year, the Report examines the interrelationship between transnational corporations, market structure and competition policy. This issue is particularly relevant because the liberalization of foreigndirect- investment regimes allows a greater presence of transnational corporations in host countries, with important implications for market structures and competition.
