Uppsala University, Humanistisk-samhällsvetenskapliga vetenskapsområdet, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Business Studies.
2005 (English)Book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In their foreign markets, MNCs interact not only with customers and suppliers but also with governments and bureaucrats. The book is an outcome of several years of research on MNCs´market activities in developing and industrialized countries. Different from the earlier studies, this book addresses how interactions not only with business parners, but also with the vast variety of governmental and legislative organizations, affect local firms and MNCS´businesses. Based on the business network theory, the book develops a new model for the exchange relationships between local customers and MNCs and investages the effect of different political organizations and other business firms. It examines relationshps using several dimensions, business, social and political, through multiple cases from a developing country (DC) and industrialized countris. The comparison provides deepended knowledge on strength and longevity of business relationshps in these two different business worlds. The outcomes reveal new insights with potential applications for other DCs. The book is useful for Executives of MNCs as well as governments of DCs. By providing new facts on local firms´behaviour, the book supports Executives in choosing the appropriate actions in their globalization efforts. Also, goverments in DCs are assisted in understanding the effects of their political decisions on local firms and MNCs and thus the industrialization of the country.
