OECD Economic Globalisation Indicators is the first OECD publication on this subject. It presents the main indicators proposed in the OECD Handbook on Economic Globalisation Indicators, the objective of which is to gauge the intensity and magnitude of the globalisation process. The areas covered by the Handbook and this publication include capital movements and foreign direct investment, the economic activity of multinational enterprises, the internationalisation of technology, and international trade.With over 240 figures,  OECD Economic Globalisation Indicators helps identify the economic activities of member countries that are under foreign control, and more particularly the contribution of multinational enterprises to growth, employment, productivity, labour compensation, research and development, technology diffusion and international trade.These indicators shed new light on financial, technological and trade interdependencies within OECD countries.
