Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) studies have evolved as one of the mainstreams in business strategy. This book presents a comprehensive perspective on the motivations behind the studies, the effects of FDI, and how it can be utilized and extended to other areas of studies. Written with an Asian perspective, this book not only touches upon business strategies but also covers government policies toward promoting and attracting FDI for industrial and economic development. The author, with his vast experience in consulting and research projects for multinational companies, international organizations and governments, examines real world business practices of Eastern firms and how they relate to their Western counterparts, thus making this book a valuable and practical reference not only for students, but for practitioners, too.
This book is a critical study of the issues surrounding the treaty allocation of tax powers between source and residence countries. It discusses the allocation of tax powers between the competing jurisdictional claims in an unbiased and practical way. It examines the prevailing treaty allocation rules from the perspective of developing countries and discusses the quest for developing an appropriate tax treaty model for allocating revenue between developing and developed countries.While demonstrating the inequity of the existing network of double tax treaties involving developing countries, it seeks to shift the emphasis in international discussions on the tax concerns of developing countries from double tax treaties to the need for providing assistance to developing countries to improve their enforcement and administrative capability in tax matters. As such, the book is ideal for students or tax practitioners, tax officers in developing countries and advisers on matters relating to overseas investments.
This book provides authoritative academic and professional insights into the effects of foreign direct investment (FDI) on home and host countries. It highlights global trends and patterns, and explores related policy challenges all with a special focus on the countries in Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe. The book cuts through the existing data fog by offering a wide range of up-to-date academic findings and institutional expertise. Those findings are rounded off with lessons to be learned from historical developments (Ireland's success story), an evaluation of current trends (the role of China) and an investment promotion agency policy for attracting sustainable investment (CzechInvest). Contributions made by central bank officials, institutional representatives, members of academia and professionals provide for a uniquely complementary view on FDI developments and their implications.At a time of big changes in the FDI landscape, this book offers both empirical and econometric evidence on foreign direct investment and will be of great interest to economists and other experts in the fields of economic policy and European integration from central, commercial and investment banks, governments, international organizations, universities and research institutes. The special focus on FDI will attract those interested in, or directly involved in tackling the challenges of attracting sustainable investment or investing successfully abroad.
