Firm heterogeneity in modelling foreign direct investment location decisions

Simona Rasciute (), Eric Pentecost () and Ben Ferrett

Applied Economics, 2014, vol. 46, issue 12, 1350-1360

Abstract: This article investigates the probability of the FDI location decisions of multinational enterprises using a mixed logit panel data model, which is the most flexible discrete choice model. We employ a three-level data set, which includes over 1100 FDI location decisions into 13 alternative Central and Eastern European Countries (CEECs) over an 11-year period. Our empirical results on the effect of host country, industry and firm characteristics on the probability of undertaking FDI in a particular location are significant and consistent with the predictions of our theoretical model.
