It introduces the concept of 'Global Factory' - a framework for the understanding of spatially distributed activities under the control of a focal firm. It examines knowledge transfer processes in MNEs with particular reference to technology transfer to China. It also focuses on the role of foreign direct investment in the transformation of China. It ends with a research agenda.
