abstract

  • This article examines international country location choices for equity investment undertaken by global hotel chains. Why do certain host countries attract more hotel investment than others? A second underlying issue that we tackle in this article is whether the traditional foreign direct investment determinants used in past studies on manufacturing also apply to services - or whether service sector-specific determinants are better explanatory variables for understanding the distribution of service foreign direct investment across countries. © 1999 Elsevier Science Inc.
