  • Abstract

    Foreign Direct Investment becomes one of the business globalization forces. It is by this meaning, a strong factor having its evident impact on tying together the economies and forcing the exchange waves between them. In this context, the advocates of foreign investment claim that it brings new technology and know-how in an attempt to increase productivity and enhance efficiency. At the contrary, the opponents of foreign investment effects claim that this investment is no more than one of the different features of the economic imperialism. This paper tends to present a synthesis of the foreign direct investment effects.
