SYNOPSIS

There is almost no nation in the world that may escape from the
globalization impacts. The industrial revolution which was initiated
in Europe in 1700 has resulted in tremendous change in the world
economy through changes in technology level. Hence it leads to
increasing output productivity as well as slashing of transportation
and services costs. Globalization has forced firms and countries to
expand their markets through export and foreign direct investment
activities.

(Tiada negara di dunia ini terkecuali daripada merasai kesan arus


globalisasi yang telah berlaku di seluruh pelosok dunia ini. Revolusi
Perindustrian yang berlaku di Eropah pada tahun 1700 telah
membawa kepada perubahan penting ekonomi dunia melalui
perubahan teknologi. Ini mendorong kepada peningkatan
produktiviti pengeluaran dan mengurangkan kos pengangkutan

dan negara membuat keputusan untuk mengeksport dan melabur di
luar negara.
