Measuring Globalisation: Activities of Multinationals 2007, Volume I, Manufacturing Sector

This first volume of a two-volume publication presents detailed data on the industrial activity of multinationals in OECD countries. In an era of globalisation, these data highlight the increasing importance of multinationals in the economies of host countries. Time series cover 23 countries for the period 2000-2004.  This volume provides data for the manufacturing sector covering 18 variables including production, employment, investment, research and trade. Volume II provides similar data for services. These data provide a measure of the impact of foreign direct investment on the economies of the OECD countries. From this standpoint, they provide a vital backup for data on direct investment flows.This publication includes StatLinks, URLs linking to Excel® spreadsheets containing the underlying data.

For all variables except R&D expenditure, the data are prepared by the Swiss National Bank (SNB), on the basis of annual surveys on stocks of direct investment abroad. Participation in the surveys is mandatory for all enterprises resident in Switzerland with direct investment abroad exceeding CHF 10 million (including credits) at the time of the survey. Up to 2003, the annual survey was carried out among approximately 850 companies and groups of companies in Switzerland. In 2004, the number of companies included in the survey has been expanded to 1 100.
