Description

This book examines Japanese FDI in the world economy over more than five decades; with a unique focus on the internationalisation experience of selected industries, such as forestry, textiles, electronics, motor vehicles, steel and services as well as case studies of individual firms. Roger Farrell considers the theoretical explanations for Japanese FDI and particular motifs which have been a continuing rationale for FDI, including energy and resource security; the theme of retaining market access; the relocation of manufacturing to retain international competitiveness; withdrawal after the bubble economy; and the new phase of investment in the 2000s.
