There are as many instances of MNEs exerting very little de facto inﬂuence over the day-to-day decision making of their 100% owned aﬃliates, as there are of such enterprises with only a minority foreign shareholding exercising a substantial inﬂuence. And if inﬂuence or voice is the criterion, why conﬁne attention to a minority equity investment? What of ﬁrms that engage in a keiretsu network of inter-ﬁrm cooperation? What of the cross-holding relationships in Germany between banks and industrial corporations?
For example, ICI is easily identiﬁed as a British ﬁrm, Ford as a US ﬁrm, NEC as a Japanese ﬁrm, Volvo as a Swedish ﬁrm, Siemens as a German ﬁrm, Samsung as a Korean ﬁrm, and Nokia as a Finnish ﬁrm. Yet each of these MNEs has its shares quoted on a number of stock exchanges throughout the world, and the membership of their board of directors is multinational, while an increasing proportion of their value-added activity is undertaken outside their home countries. 12 More diﬃcult is to identify the true nationality of ownership of an MNE that is, itself, fully or partly owned by foreign interests.

Indeed, in some industrial sectors dominated by global producers, notably pharmaceuticals, autos and electronic goods, it is becoming increasingly diﬃcult to distinguish between the nationality of the ownership of value-added activities in any meaningful way. Some implications of this fact are discussed in some detail in Parts III and IV. 3 Forms of Foreign Involvement by MNEs Traditionally, the territorial expansion of a ﬁrm’s production outside its national boundaries has been achieved by the act of a foreign direct investment.
