International Panel Meeting
Every year we organise a panel meeting as part of the WIBF’s International Business Conferences. This year’s discussion topic is "How do MNCs make FDI decisions with a focus on country-specific locational factors."
Ours panellists are usually businessmen and/or academics involved in international business as practitioners or researchers. We will soon announce more panellists here.
