In this panel session, I presented some of the preliminary conclusions of the study commissioned by COFIDES on the relationship between FDI and sustainable development. One key conclusion is that FDI motives and the role of the subsidiary within the MNC network are important factors to explain the motivation of the Parent company to transfer knowledge to its subsidiary in the host country. This motivation is reflected in the range of transfer mechanisms used and its intensity While the impact of FDI projects on economic development converge with those of the extant literature, the impact on social development is very much related to the quality of the subsidiary's employment policies as well as its embeddedness in the local context.
