No 42, NBP Working Papers from Narodowy Bank Polski, Economic Research Department

Abstract: This paper examines the existence of externalities associated with FDI in host country by exploiting firm-level panel data covering the Polish corporate sector. The main findings are as follows: Local firms benefit form foreign presence in the same industry and in downstream industries. Absorptive capacity of domestci firms is highly relevant to the size of spillovers. Competetive pressure faciliates backward spillovers, while market power increases the extent of forward spilovers. Host country equity participation in foreign firms is consistent with higher unconditional productivity spillovers to domestic firms.
