Strategic Management: Formulation and Implementation

Mne - Multinational Enterprise

A multinational corporation (MNC) or enterprise (MNE) is a corporation or an enterprise that manages production or delivers services in more than one country. It can also be referred to as an international corporation. The International Labour Organization (ILO) has defined an MNC as a corporation that has its management headquarters in one country, known as the home country, and operates in several other countries, known as host countries.

Technology And Innovatory Capacity: A Host Country Perspective

One of the main advantages of MNEs is their ability to produce, acquire, master the understanding of and organize the use of technological assets across national boundaries. Large industrialized firms have been the main producers, organizers and users of technological capacity. The globalization of markets and production and the tendency for technologies to become more generic and systemic have tended to strengthen the advantages of large MNEs.
