TERRITORIAL INSERTION OF MULTINATIONAL COMPANIES IN CENTRAL EUROPEAN COUNTRIES. THE ROLE OF THE GLOBAL STRATEGY

Since the end of the 1980’s, Central and Eastern European countries
(CEECs) have had the strategy of enhancing their integration into the worldwide
economy. In view of the difficulties facing insertion via the traditional
method of exports, this objective has taken place along with a policy of openness
towards foreign direct investment (FDI), since the various forms that
external capital can take, FDI seems to be that which has the greatest re-structuring
ability for the receptor economy. Our hypothesis is that the effects that
the FDI may have on the fabric of local production, can only be understood by
bearing in mind the global strategy employed by multinational companies
(MNC). We analyse our hypothesis in the case of three Central European
Countries (Hungary, Czech Republic and Poland), which have received the
main amount of the FDI in the region.
