    Abstract

    This paper looks into the effects of FDI activity on European integration. As a starting point, the importance of transnationals in the context of the globalization - regionalization- mix of the 1990s is discussed. Then the paper concentrates on inward FDIs in the European Union (EU). The discussion draws on the evidence of transnational activity in the EU by the members of the "Triad" (EU, Japan, USA). Given the current FDI policy of the EU, which does not accomodate adequately the regional disparities, the paper concludes that transnational activity in Western Europe could become a source of economic rivalry with disintegrating effects that hinder the objectives of the Maastricht agreement.
