Foreign Direct Investment and the Single Market

By J. Peter Neary


In this paper, I present a simple framework in which some of these issues can be considered. I focus on a single industry (so general equilibrium repercussions are ignored), and on the location decisions of a single potential multinational firm. I begin by paying more attention than usual to the non- strategic bench-mark case where the multinational firm has a monopoly and faces no competition from domestic firms. Subsequently I relax this assumption, but even then I simplify by allowing a limited role for domestic firms.Foreign direct investment; market integration; multinational corporations; single market
