    Foreign direct investment spillovers, absorptive capacities and human capital development: Evidence from Argentina.Working Paper No. 96

    01 January 2005

    This paper has been prepared within the framework of a research project on analysing the employment effects of multinational enterprises (MNEs), coordinated and edited by Ann Harrison of the University of Berkeley and Kee Beom Kim of the Multinational Enterprises Programme of the ILO. In this paper Rajneesh Narula and Anabel Marin address an important policy question: Do foreign firms really transfer technology to domestic enterprises? This is a critical question from a policy perspective since many governments attract multinational enterprises through generous tax holidays and other benefits on the assumption that they do, in fact, transfer technology to domestic enterprises.
