Enterprise Restructuring and Foreign Investment in the Transforming East: The Impact of Privatization explores the dynamic interrelationships between enterprise restructuring and foreign investment in transition economies of postcommunist countries, especially those of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). This important book offers investors and international businesses a continuum from theory to praxis as it discusses theoretical and methodological issues and empirical and practical implications of economic relationships to show how these interrelationships manifest themselves in prevailing trends, policy tradeoffs, and business strategies.

Contending that the transformation to a state-owned enterprise to a capitalistic corporation involves more than reacting to economic incentives, Enterprise Restructuring and Foreign Investment in the Transforming East examines why enterprises need access to capital markets, finance investments, and acquire new capabilities in order to successfully compete in a market economy. Some of the strategies you will find that relate to common elements of the restructuring process include:
  • a shift to a less hierarchal organization structure
  • the adoption of Western financial management and accounting practices
  • the introduction of stricter budget constraints
  • the evolution of the marketing function and the rationalization of product ranges according to market needs

    Informative and intelligent, this book offers you a firsthand look at the complex and critical topic of restructuring as it relates to the realization of benefits of privatization at both the micro and macro levels. Using a case study approach, Enterprise Restructuring and Foreign Investment in the Transforming East gives you in-depth knowledge of the actual empirical/practical processes as they have been experienced in transition economies.
