About the product

Unemployment, a subject high on the agenda of governments, is the special focus of this year's Report. It analyzes the wide-range of effects of the activities of transnational corporations (TNCs) on employment and shows TNCs as major employers creating over 70 million jobs world-wide and also contributing to employment indirectly through a variety of linkages. It discusses the implications for the quantity, quality and location of the jobs generated by the increasing transnationalization of firms and the emergence of more complex corporate strategies. The Report also discusses the continuing growth of foreign direct investment in developed and developing countries which occurred in the midst of a continued decline in world-wide investment flows.
