FDI, Foreign Direct Investment, supply chain


The automotive value chain is one of the most significant industrial sector in order to explain the worldwide foreign direct investment flows (FDI). During 2003-2013 period, the automotive industry received the 8% of the total worldwide FDI; becoming the fourth major industrial sector in terms of investment received
Inside the automotive value chain, the proportion of FDI received by the automotive supply chain significantly increased during the last 10 years. In 2003, only the 26% of the total automotive FDI corresponded to the supply chain. However, in 2013, these proportion raised to 44% (FDI Markets, Financial Times).
Taking into account the previous evidence, the aim the paper is to contribute to the study of FDI determinants of location decisions in the automotive industry, and particularly in the supply chain during the 2003-2013 period.
