Archived — Discussion Paper Number 04, Foreign Direct Investment and Market Framework Policies: Reducing Frictions in APEC Policies on Competition and Intellectual Property, October 1996
Strategic Policy Sector
Economic Research and Policy Analysis Branch
Rapidly expanding foreign direct investment (FDI) and the growing role of global corporations are creating new challenges for the design of market framework policies in the APEC region. Framework policies can distort the allocation of FDI and reduce the extent to which countries benefit individually and collectively from the activities of MNEs. Co-operative arrangements can help prevent policy conflicts, reduce resource misallocation and create an international environment that is more favorable to long-term business planning.
