This chapter examines the role of indigenous MNEs in promoting economic development. It focuses on MNEs from Asia. In addition to the Chinese and Korean MNEs, the chapter analyzes the regional activities of all MNEs in Asia. Certain MNEs are discussed in detail to explain their business strategies and impact on development. The twist here is that most Asian MNEs are from Japan. The chapter finds that, on average, over 80 percent of the sales and production of Japanese MNEs is in Asia. Thus, Japanese MNEs are major vehicles for economic development in Asia and are not global firms but regional firms. The chapter relates these findings to the FSA-CSA framework, details several case studies of successful Asian MNEs, and also extends the upstream and downstream framework developed earlier.

Keywords:   economic development, sales, production, global firms, regional firms
