The Foreign Activities of Companies

  • Hans Günther Meissner

Abstract

Companies are developing their foreign activities in greater measure than before, against a background of the world economic dynamic as described above and the international division of labour which derives from it. The increase in foreign activities may be seen especially in the increase in export quotas which single companies and whole branches of manufacturing and service industries have achieved.
