Access from EThOS:
As debate over the role of multinational enterprises has changed over time, many developing countries in Sub-Saharan Africa have aggressively sought to attract foreign direct investment in order to gain from the expected benefits associated with investment of this nature. There has been a shift in policies and an introduction of various incentives to attract investment. New possibilities appear to be associated with the participation of developing countries in increasingly complex global divisions of labour which are orchestrated by multinational companies .across borders. In this context, attention has turned to analysing the role of multinational enterprises in orchestrating global commodity chains in which developing countries can participate.
