The Emerging Market Global Players (EMGP) project, a collaborative effort led by CCSI, brings together researchers on FDI from leading institutions in emerging markets to gather original data from company surveys and additional research and to produce annual reports based on their findings. Those EMGP reports identify the top multinationals from each of a number of emerging markets, provide detailed information on the key features of the firms’ activities abroad, and discuss other issues, including the underlying policy context influencing outward investment from those emerging markets and the impact of the MNEs on sustainable development.
Some of the data from the reports is included on the Data pages. The Reports contain additional contextual information, as well as data on other aspects of covered firms’ operations, such as location and number of affiliates, major M&As and greenfield investments, and gender composition of firm leadership.
Brazil’s top multinational enterprises (MNEs) have made the country the second largest outward investor among developing countries in terms of foreign direct investment (FDI) outflows in 2006, according to a new survey released today jointly by the Brazilbased Fundação Dom Cabral (FDC) and the Columbia Program on International Investment (CPII) in New York.
