|Keywords:||DRNTU::Business::Management::Competition||Issue Date:||1998||Abstract:||Since the start of the Japanese economic bubble in the 1980s, Japanese foreign direct investments have been pouring into East Asian countries. Manufacturing facilities sprouted rapidly in these host countries to capitalize on their comparative advantages, namely the lower factor costs and/or the potentially huge markets in these countries. For those Japanese firms who ventured overseas during this period, the type of manufacturing configuration adopted for their manufacturing subsidiaries in the host countries were either Component/single-product or Multi-product facilities, depending on the country's comparative advantages.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/42664||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
