Transnational corporations

In 1990, the activities of transnational corporations (TNCS), in view of their impact on international development and global investment flows and trade, continued to attract the attention of the international community. The United Nations continued to support efforts to formulate a code of conduct on TNCS, but no consensus was reached on its final form. In December, the General Assembly requested its President, with the support of the Secretary-General, to arrange for intensive consultations to achieve an early agreement on the code.
