This chapter argues that long-term investments by MNEs in low-income countries require reliable and reasonable national framework conditions. In their efforts to embed themselves into the local economy, MNEs may need the assistance of local civil society and business organizations, supported by development assistance (DA). They must help the local economy to meet the quality standards necessary to become integrated into global sustainable value chains.
