|abstract: ||Firms competencies and needs may determine movements to foreign
locations. Firms may use their own resources to establish or maintain
activities of foreign direct investment, or otherwise when internal resources
are insu cient they may apply for external support provided
With a binary probit model applied on a recent survey, a Bayesian
lter calculates the probability of a given characteristic's and use of
public support contributing to the existence of foreign direct investment.
The results show that some characteristics like the size, labour productivity,
age, and domestic ownership, have a noticeable e ect on
support, there is evidence that measures that promote informational
services, scal bene ts, and protocols between governmental agencies
and banks have positive e ects on existence of foreign direct investment.
This study may add useful information to help scholars and
policy makers to understand competencies that rms need to operate
abroad either rooted internally or externally.|
