      Abstract An overlooked aspect of agglomeration economies, which are positive externalities that stem from the geographic clustering of industry, and foreign direct investment in the United States. J. Myles Shaver. Corresponding Author. Leonard N. Stern School of Business, New York University, New York, U.S.A. The conventional policy approach has been to assume that inward foreign direct investment (FDI) can stimulate significant clustering activity, thus generating significant spillovers. This paper, however, questions this and shows that, while clusters can generate significant productivity spillovers from FDI, this only occurs in pre-existing.

    The academic and policy debate on regional development has considered particular forms of firm agglomeration and foreign direct investment (FDI) as alternative and almost mutually exclusive drivers of regional economic growth. Section 2 introduces the debate by illustrating the link between regional development and agglomeration externalities. Foreign direct investment (FDI) is defined as "investment made to acquire lasting interest in enterprises operating outside of the economy of the investor." The FDI relationship consists of a parent enterprise and a foreign affiliate which together form a Multinational corporation (MNC). In order to qualify as FDI the investment must afford the parent enterprise control over its foreign affiliate.

In urban economics, and more recently in the international economics literature, agglomeration has been offered as a principal determinant of new investment. Yet agglomeration has rarely been subject to precise statistical tests.

Our empirical model allows the separation of agglomeration effects from the rate of capital stock adjustment, two forces that previous research has conflated.

agglomeration economies, location and foreign direct investment. To the best of our knowledge, this is one of the first studies of agglomeration effects on the location choices by foreign investors in Vietnam using detailed information about individual firms.

The empirical results are particularly. Using a conditional logit set-up and choice-specific fixed-effects, it is found that external economies from service agglomeration are the main determinant of foreign direct investment location. In sum, spillovers from foreign direct investment and exporting seem to be more prevalent in agglomerations.

This policy note argues that the policy focus should be on facilitating the private-sector-led agglomeration process instead of on mandatory. Most importantly, we demonstrate that externalities associated with FDI agglomeration can bias estimates away from finding a pollution haven effect if omitted from the analysis.

We include the stock of inward FDI as a proxy for agglomeration and employ a GMM estimator to control for endogenous time-varying determinants of FDI flows.A study of FDI in France, Regional Science and Urban Econom DE MELLO L.
