dc.description.abstractThis paper formalises the choice a firm has to face when entering a foreignmarket via FDI as between setting up an entirely new plant (greenfieldinvestment) or acquiring an existing indigenous firm. Our results show thatin an asymmetric duopoly situation a new entrant will normally be best offby acquiring an existing indigenous low-technology firm, thus, forming aduopoly with an indigenous high-technology firm. While in welfare termsthe entry of the foreign firm damages the country in most cases, there existsome possibilities that welfare, particularly after a greenfield investment bythe foreign firm, is higher than before entry, even when there is full profitrepatriation.-
