Emerging-market Multinational Enterprises in East Central Europe

Editor: Ágnes Szunomár

“This volume represents the first-ever attempt to systematically analyse emerging market multinationals’ investment into European emerging countries. This type of investments, as we believe, differ from both emerg-ing MNEs’ investment into the core European countries and developed MNEs’ investment into the emerging regions of Europe. An additional novelty of the research endeavour is that besides macroeconomic and institutional factors it incorporates political factors into the analysis which may also have an important role to play in attracting emerging, especially Chinese, companies to a certain region.”
