Abstract

It is a common feature in export processing foreign investments that large MNCs seeking alternative producing sites have the upper hand in bargaining terms of entry with host governments. In this case study we detail the terms negotiated between a large international firm and a small host country in the siting of a pineapple-processing plant, and examine the benefits arising to the respective parties. Some conclusions are then drawn at a more general level.
