Abstract or Summary
  • International production – the production of goods and services in countries that is controlled and managed by firms headquartered in other countries – is largely driven by foreign direct investment (FDI) flows. Over 500,000 foreign affiliates established by 60,000 parent companies throughout the world employed about 35 million people in 1998 (World Investment Report, 1999). Foreign affiliate sales are estimated to have reached $11.4 trillion during the same time period. In what follows, some of the issues surrounding overall FDI, particularly the theoretical arguments for and against FDI are addressed first.vii Then, a discussion of the empirical studies in the food, agricultural and fisheries sectors is followed by an outline of policy directions in a multilateral context. With more than 1.5 billion people living on incomes of a dollar-a-day earned primarily from agricultural and other natural resource-based sectors, the compelling need to investigate the welfare effects of multinational activity in these industries is highlighted in the conclusions.
