FDI, Productivity and Economic Restructuring in Central and Eastern Europe

Judit Hamar and Johannes Stephan

Chapter 5 in Technology Transfer via Foreign Direct Investment in Central and Eastern Europe, 2006, pp 77-95 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract This introductory chapter to Part II of the book presents a comparative overview of economic development, and the changing conditions for and results of FDI as a mechanism of productivity growth in Estonia, Hungary, Poland, the Slovakia-Republic, Slovenia. By summarising briefly the main similarities and differences between these countries (with a particular focus on Hungary), we try to determine whether differences by countries depend on their different stages in FDI attractiveness, labour productivity,1 economic development levels and restructuring by technology intensity.
