This volume provides a significant contribution to the understanding of
the effects of foreign direct investment on trade. Through an
investigation of the pattern and determinants of trade in Portuguese
manufacturing, it demonstrates FDI’s long term transforming effect and how
it has the potential to transfer and embed knowledge within the EU through
upgrading host economies. The volume will be of interest to academics,
postgraduate students, researchers and policy makers.

Joao Bento is Assistant Professor at the Department of Economics,
Management and Industrial Engineering of the University of Aveiro,
