Description

The main focus of this study, Cross-border Mergers and Acquisitions within APEC and their Implications for Exports, Greenfield FDI, and GDP, October 2009 (Reproduced electronically June 2010), is on intra-APEC cross-border mergers and acquisitions (M&As) from 1980 to 2007, i.e. cross-border M&As with both the acquiring firms and target firms in the APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation) economies. It aims at (i) examining the pattern of intra-APEC cross-border M&As; (ii) exploring the determinants of cross-border M&As; (iii) analyzing the impacts of cross-border M&As on international trade, greenfield FDI, and GDP; and (iv) discussing policies on promoting cross-border M&As and the consequences on economic performance.
