Description
WORLD INVESTMENT REPORT

There are now more than 60,000 transnational corporations, with over 500,000 foreign affiliates that, together, account for over 25 percent of global output. Their combined sales exceed $11 trillion (well ahead of world exports at $7 trillion). Their stocks of assets grew by 20 percent in 1998, to over $4 trillion. The world's top 100 transnational corporations alone command more than $2 trillion of foreign assets. The list is led again by General Electric of the United States. This and other information is contained in 1999's World Investment Report, published by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development. In this World Chronicle, Karl Sauvant, from UNCTAD, discusses some of the findings in this year's Report.
