摘要

The model shows that the net effect of an inward FDI policy rests mainly on three factors: the R&D intensity of the sector (which increases with); the intensity of spillovers (which rises with); the size of the necessary subsidy (if attracting FDI).

Inward FDI is positive for the host-country consumers, has an ambiguous effect on local producers’ R&D and profits.

In high-technology sectors, a policy of attracting inward FDI may increase welfare in both the home and host countries.

The effect on host-country welfare is found to be more beneficial if technological spillovers are national, instead of international, in scope.
