“…As mentioned earlier, the current study only examined the influence of FDI on the combined productivity of local and foreign owned sectors because of the lack of separate data on productivity, capital intensity, firm size and human capital for these two sectors. Thus, while Blomstrom and Wolff (1994) and Kokko et al (1996), among others, find a positive impact of FDI on the productivity in local firms in developing countries, the current study could only show that FDI has a positive impact on the combined productivity of local and foreign firms. Unlike Aitken and Harrison (1999), who assess the impact of FDI on foreign-invested and local enterprises respectively at the firm level, we were not able to separate the FDI effects on foreign subsidiaries from the effects on local firms.…”

“…Using an augmented production function, Caves found that the very presence of foreign firms had a positive impact on labour productivity in the industries studied. Subsequent studies of this type by Globerman [1979] for Canada, by Blomstrom and Persson [1983], Kokko [1994], and Blomstrom and Wolff [1994] for Mexico, by Kokko, Tansini and Zejan [1996] for the Uruguayan manufacturing sector, and by Liu et al [2000] for UK manufacturing, confirm positive productivity spillovers from FDI.…”

“…Several country studies have been carried out, providing diverging results on the role of FDI spillovers with respect to stimulating economic growth. Whereas positive effects from spillovers have been found for, HJ Mexico (Blomström and Persson, 1983;Blomström and Wolff, 1994;Kokko, 1994), Uruguay (Kokko, Tansini, and Zejan, 1996) and Indonesia (Sjöholm, 1999b), no spillovers were traced in studies for Morocco (Haddad and Henderson, 1993) and Venezuela (Aitken and Harrison, 1999). These diverging results may underline the crucial role of certain host country characteristics necessary to let FDI contribute positively to economic growth through spillovers.…”

“…Are some firms better placed to capture the spillover benefits of foreign-owned firms? Absorptive capacity effects have previously been explored in the productivity spillovers literature by Cohen and Levinthal (1989); Grünfeld (2003); Girma and Wakelin (2002);Haskel et al (2002); Kokko et al (1996). However, to the best of our knowledge there is no previous study on the effects of sender capacity.…”
