With right government policies and low cost of transfer there would be an increase in activities like research and development (Hoekman, et al., ) which would facilitate the stability of technology transfer process (Lai and Tsai, ).

Another determinant factor in technology transfer. The post-World War II era has seen a dramatic increase in the international flow of technology across boundaries. Together with its major actor or transfer agent, the TNC, this international transfer of technology has had a major effect in the composition of world trade and in the comparative advantage of the receiving and supplying countries.

In the past two decades, a good deal of attention has been focused on the consequences of the international transfer of technology (and other resources) on recipient or host countries.

l But it has only been since the mids that some of the implications of this transfer for the sending or home countries have been seriously : John H Dunning.

This book is about the changing role of technology transfer in the catching up process of developing countries and is focused on changes in technology transfer from the s/70s to the present day. TNCs seem to be central to economic growth in today’s world.

Foreign Direct investment has helped China overtake the UK and France to become the world’s fourth biggest economy. TNCs can be responsible for the transfer of technology and managerial know-how from developed to developing nations.

TNCs can be seen as the architects of globalisation. The vital issue which TNCs offer to host countries is technology transfer.

Sagafi-Nejald () has illustrated that the growth and a transfer of technology is contributed by TNCs straight through local research and development which produce the fertile performance in host countries to be more effective. countries, transfer of technology involves not only universities, but also government-funded laboratories.

This paper, however, focuses on the transfer of technology from universities, since universities have special challenges and institu-tional problems that may not be of direct relevance to national research institutions.

And even when such transfer does happen it does not necessarily mean that the technology will be beneficial and widely diffused throughout the host country. This is mainly because TNCs tend to inhibit the spread of its proprietary technologies beyond its organizational core in their home country, or in more advanced industrialized countries.

2 Transfer of technology and knowledge-sharing for development categories of transactions could represent transfer of technology as follows: x The assignment, sale and licensing of all forms of industrial property, except for trade marks, service marks and trade names when they are not part of technology transfer transactions.

Economic theories of TNCs, environment and development 4 With the dramatic expansion of international production seen in recent years it becomes increasingly pertinent to understand the environmental consequences of this development. Is it the case that TNCs relocate productions to LDCs in order to escape pollution control costs in OECD countries.

18 Although the TNCs' position of control in the world's technology market has often been criticized, 19 it is not likely to change. In international business international technology transfer is an important part. It involves several modes.

Product or process technologies can be transferred to a host country within a multinational company. Other modes include sale or licensing of technology. In these cases a company other than the technology owner takes technology to a host country.

The increased transfer of knowledge and technology to emerging market economies has partly offset the effects of the recent slowdown in innovation at the technology frontier and helped drive income convergence for many emerging economies. In contrast, advanced economies have been more affected by the technology slowdown at the frontier.

Technology transfer, also called transfer of technology (TOT), is the process of transferring (disseminating) technology from the person or organization that owns or holds it to another person or organization. It occurs along various axes: among universities, from universities to businesses (and vice versa), from large businesses to smaller ones (and vice versa), from governments to businesses.

Disadvantages: Unless the company actively participates in a program to educate local companies in the new technologies, the country’s industry will not really benefit. c) On the issue of whether the technology transfer measureii has distorting effects on trade and should be prohibited, WGTI has conducted a series of study(WTO,a, b, c) and the main findings are while foreign investment.

Introduction. Intensified capital flows at the global scale and the rising power of transnational corporations (TNCs) are vivid indicators that economic globalization is an important feature of the world economy (Dicken, ).TNC-led globalization leaves spatial imprints on cities and is a crucial driver of the globally-connected city network (Brown et al., ).
