For example, the MNC may take advantage of interfirm spillovers of technological knowledge (Jaffe, Trajtenberg, & Henderson, ) that are captured by subsidiaries, or extract knowledge from sophisticated customers and skilled competitors by having specialized subsidiaries in strategic locations (Asmussen, Pedersen, & Dhanaraj, ; Dunning. (10) We investigate the ways market reallocation and knowledge spillovers influence potential gains from MNC competition, and their relative importance, using a general analytical framework based on a standard model of MNC production and heterogeneous firms, accounting for self-selection of .

Spillovers from MNCs to domestic firms continue to be hypothesised to arise almost automatically from technological assets created centrally in the MNC headquarters (Blomström and Person,Javorick,Chang and Xu, ).

Heterogeneous MNC Subsidiaries and Technological Spillovers: Explaining Positive and Negative Effects in India Anabel Marin and Subash Sasidharan Abstract One of the most intriguing aspects of the recent empirical literature on FDI-related spillover effects is the increasing identification of mixed results.
Downloadable. Conventional models of multinational corporation (MNC) related spillovers in host economies assume that they derive from the technological assets created at the headquarters. Subsidiaries' activities in the host economy are not given any role in this process.
In this paper, drawing on recent advances in MNC literature, we propose an alternative model.

Handle: RePEc:mad:wpaper Abstract. The usual perspective on technology spillovers from FDI sees the MNC subsidiary as a passive actor. It presumes that the technological superiority that spreads from subsidiaries to other firms in the host economy is initially created outside it by MNC parent companies, and is delivered to subsidiaries via international technology transfer.

first is that subsidiaries’ own technological activities contribute to the absorptive capacity of the subsidiary with respect to the technology transferred from the parent, thereby increasing the potential of spillovers in association with knowledge created by the MNC in other locations.

In most cases, host countries access superior technology through technological spillovers and, this enhances the productivity of the local firms.
Campos (, p. 6) states, “In addition, host country firms may obtain other potential productivity spillovers that the presence of MNC. The literature identifies spillovers as a major mechanism through which firms transfer and acquire knowledge.
Theories of endogenous technological change (Grossman, Helpman ) demonstrate that since knowledge and technology are partially public, then knowledge can be acquired or produced by another firm without incurring large additional costs. International knowledge spillovers, especially through multinational companies (MNCs), have recently been a major topic of academic and management debate.
However, most studies treat MNC subsidiaries as relatively passive actors. We challenge this assumption by investigating the drivers of knowledge protection intensity of MNC subsidiaries.

BUCKELY, P. & CASSON, M. Abstract A large number of studies have used firm‐level data to examine whether foreign direct investment (FDI) generates knowledge spillovers to domestically owned firms in.
The knowledge diffusion and spillovers to the host country via FDIs usually involves a two stage process, namely, the knowledge transfer from MNC headquarters and/or sister subsidiaries to the subsidiary in the host country (intra-network knowledge sharing), and the spillovers from the host subsidiary to the host industry.
MNC foreign subsidiaries are more agglomerative than domestic plants in capital- skilled labor- and R&D-intensive industries. In industries with greater than median levels of capital intensity, the distribution of agglomeration indices is rightward-shifted for MNC foreign subsidiaries compared to domestic plants.

Foss and Torben Pedersen INTRODUCTION It is now commonly accepted that knowledge ranks first in the hierarchy of strategically relevant resources (e.g., Grant ), in fact, it is so widely accepted ‘ as to have become almost axiomatic’ (Gupta and.

MNC’s can clearly find it in their interest to help increase the competitiveness and quality of their suppliers, and they can do so either making their technology available to them, or by providing strong incentives for them to adapt (Kokko ).
Transfers of technology through such linkages are referred to as inter-industry spillovers. A multinational corporation (MNC) or worldwide enterprise is a corporate organization that owns or controls production of goods or services in at least one country other than its home country.
Black's Law Dictionary suggests that a company or group should be considered a multinational corporation if it derives 25% or more of its revenue from out-of-home-country operations.technology spillover and social interaction that has suggested the existence of both industry and regional spillovers across –rms.
As expected, our results show a positive and signi–cant correlation between a –rm™s productivity and that of its reference groups, especially for –rms 3.Third, if outsourcing is profitable for the subsidiary, MNC management will encourage knowledge sharing with suppliers.
This process yields inter-industry spillovers that should be observed as productivity improvements in upstream sectors. Hence, the technical knowhow that is most likely to generate new technological opportunities for host-country.
