As they grow, their dominance becomes stronger, and their influence over the economy is significant. These mega cities in developing nations are often major centres of manufacturing and labour intensive work. They have a high population and unemployment rate, which leads to cheap labour, as companies are able to employ large amounts of people at a low cost. This benefit therefore makes mega cities attractive destinations for TNCs. New York for example, has the United Nations headquarters located within it, as well as Google, American Express, and J.P.Morgan, and London, has the headquarters of Citi Bank, and Goldman Sachs. Therefore, TNCs influence in the global economy allows them to become chief competitors in the global market, and that developing nations are dependent on world cities for employment, and trade, and this gives world cities their economic authority.

I feel that transnational cooperation’s have had a large impact on globalisation. A transnational corporation (Multinational Corporation) TNC is a corporation or enterprise that manages production establishments or delivers services in at least two countries such as Coca Cola and Nike. Very large multinationals have budgets that exceed those of many countries. Multinational corporations can have a powerful influence in international relations and local economies and play an important role in globalisation.

The objective of MNC to operate in other countries is to gain competitive advantage through several ways. Firstly, MNC is able to take advantage of difference in country-specific circumstances. For example, MNC may choose to locate its productions in less developed country like Vietnam to gain cheap labor cost. Secondly,
There are many reasons as to why companies choose to become a multinational corporation. Many choose to expand to other countries because they want to expand their markets, search for new materials, pursue new technology, are looking for production efficiency, they want to elude politics or regulations, or are simply looking to diversify their markets. However, I feel that ultimately the main reason as to why they choose to build manufacturing plants overseas is simply to maximize profits. We are all aware that companies are in business to make money. In order to maximize these profits they must look for other alternatives or ways to cut back on their expense
There are so many ways to evaluate the role of TNCs, and how they shape and contribute to the economy. Before all this one must understand what globalization is and why it is very important to TNCs. Globalization is simply the integration of culture, trade, natural resources and factors of production between nations. But, economic globalization refers to increasing economic interdependence of national economies across the world through a rapid increase in cross-border movement of goods, services, technology and capital (Shangquan, 2000). The main key players are transnational corporations (TNC) sometimes known as multinational corporations (MNC).TNC’s are firms that have attained the power needed to co-ordinate and operate across the boundaries of many nations. Usually the main purpose of TNCs is to maximize profit and increase their selling market. This is why many TNCs are interested in globalization because without an effective and free trade global economy, many (if not all) will not be able to function and be successful. Some economist feel differently about how TNC’s
The term ‘corporation’ encompasses a range of corporate structures including subsidiaries, holding companies, and joint ventures. ‘Transnational corporations’ are those corporations (and their related entities) that have operations in more than one state. Such entities are able to operate across national borders, sell products and source labour in multiple markets, and shift production, resources and expertise as and when required. There is no doubt that global firms are engines of prosperity and growth across many areas of the world. Corporations generate valuable employment and educational opportunities, revive living conditions in flagging communities with much-needed investment and new technologies, and enhance the prosperity of those states able to ride the globalization wave.
what is the appropriate organizational structure to support the configuration of the MNC (PORTER, 1986). Furthermore, a company has to determine, in respect to its industry, the optimal trade off between global integration & local responsiveness. The standardization vs. localization trade off matrix has lead to 4 international approaches: International Exporter, Global, Transnational and Multi‐domestic (PRAHALAD & DOZ, 1987 / BARTLETT & GHOSHAL, 1989). Two frameworks can be useful for companies in this case: The OLI framework identifies the firm’s motivation for becoming a MNC. Furthermore, the AAA framework helps companies decide how to expand their business abroad. Where – Should companies start operations in large markets or the familiar ones? On which terms should companies based judgments about investing in foreign markets? ‐ The CAGE framework helps companies in evaluating the proper opportunities in foreign markets, compared with the respective costs and risks that might occur. The focus of this paper is to understand and analyse the key drivers behind why eBay1 has experienced failure in China and success in the UK. Our analysis will be supported by a SWOT analysis and a 5 Porter’s forces analysis, as well as by the frameworks mentioned above.
The term of Transnational Corporation (TNC), as its name suggests, is a reference to a firm whose influence is not limited to a single nation. “A transnational corporation is a firm that has the power to coordinate and control operations in more than one country” (Dicken, 2011, p. 110). This influence can take many forms such as subsidiaries or production facilities in other countries, but ownership is not mandatory for a corporation to have sway in another country. A TNC could gain power in a country other than its home through connections to suppliers or through the act of outsourcing (Stevis, Transnational Corporations, 2013).
If I was representing the MNC, I would stress the potential long term benefits. First, the government would be able to tax my MNC and generate tax revenue. Additionally, the MNC will help that nation-state’s economy grow—which would help the nation-state gain more power in the international monetary system. Lastly, I would stress that my MNC would create new jobs and help create infrastructure in the nation-state. In regards to human rights groups, I would promises to adhere to the labor laws of the nation-state. We would create safe business environments in order to attract the best workers. Furthermore, the local economy will grow too, because the MNC would establish infrastructure that would help aid commerce. Additionally, by creating more jobs, incomes will increase, allowing for more consumption of local goods and services. Moreover, I would argue that by
