(Advantage) Raising the Level of Investment Up gradation of Technology Improvement in Export Competitiveness Employment Generation Benefits to Consumers Resilience Factor Revenue to Government

Disadvantages FDI is not an unmixed blessing. Governments in developing countries have to be very careful while deciding the magnitude, pattern and conditions of private foreign investment. Possible adverse implications of foreign investment are the following: 1. When foreign investment is competitive with home investment, profits in domestic industries fall, leading to fall in domestic savings. 2. Contribution of foreign firms to public revenue through corporate taxes is comparatively less because of liberal tax concessions, investment allowances, disguised public subsidies and tariff protection provided byte host government. 3. Foreign firms reinforce dualistic socio-economic structure and increase income inequalities. They create a small number of highly paid modern sector executives. They divert resources away from priority sectors to the manufacture of sophisticated products for the consumption of the local elite. As they are located in urban areas, they create imbalances between rural and urban opportunities, accelerating flow of rural population to urban areas. 4. Foreign firms stimulate inappropriate consumption patterns through excessive advertising and monopolistic market power. The products made by multinationals for the domestic market are not necessarily lowing price and high in quality. Their technology is generally capital-intensive which does not suit the needs of a labor-

surplus economy. 5. Foreign firms able to extract sizeable economic and political concessions from competing governments of developing countries. Consequently, private profits of these companies may exceed social benefits. 6. Continual outflow of profits is too large in many cases, putting pressure on foreign exchange reserves. Foreign investors are very particular about profit repatriation facilities.
