Market Structure, Ownership, and Firm Performance in East Asia

October 24–25, 2008

IFN has invited international researchers working on foreign direct investment in East Asia for a two-day workshop in Stockholm. East Asia is a major receiver of FDI and the participants will discuss how these inflows of foreign multinational firms affect producer concentration, productivity, exports, employment and other important economic factors. The focus will be on the development in six East Asian countries: China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

The workshop takes place at Villa Källhagen, beautifully situated on the Djurgården pensinsula in the middle of Stockholm ( This is also where the participants will be lodged.
