Transnational corporations

The influence of transnational corporations (TNCs) and foreign direct investment (FDI) on the global economy continued to grow in 1994, with FDI flows into developing countries reaching an estimated $80 billion. However, 80 per cent of the inflows were to 10 developing countries, in particular China, and the least developed countries did not gain at all from the increase. The countries of Central and Eastern Europe continued to attract increasing amounts of investment, although FDI flows in the region were unevenly distributed, reflecting different levels of development and rates of progress in establishing market economies.
