Abstract

This study reviews the issue of foreign market entry by Multinational Enterprises (MNEs) and its effect in achieving national competitiveness of host countries, through the case of Kazakhstan, and considers policy implications for the nation. This study focuses on the following: the relationship between the operation of MNEs and the national gross domestic product growth; the relationship between MNEs’ involvement and major industrial development of the country; and the relationship between FDI inflows and major economic activities in Kazakhstan. Descriptive analyses of secondary data are used in order to meet the research objectives, in particular, during the period of 2003–2006.
