Abstract

In this paper we explore the possible relationship between the nature and characteristics of national system of innovation (NSI) and the nature and shape of FDI inflow and outcomes. We adapt an NSI-FDI conceptual framework that presents a taxonomy of NSIs as: well functioning/strong, relatively well functioning, and weak, and try to relate each of them to corresponding FDI outcomes. Despite some data limitations, our study show that the nature and characteristics of the NSI can impact on the nature and shape of FDI flows and outcomes in a particular economy, other things being equal. Therefore, it is important particularly for developing countries to formulate national policies to build systematically their NSI.
