Transnational Corporations (TNCs) have been active over the years in transcending national boundaries and positively contributing towards the economic and social development of developing countries. Numerous publications exist which enable the follow-up and evaluation of the contributions made by TNCs. However, the publications deal mostly with global and regional lines, with scarce information on individual country and/or specific economic sector. Consequently, recommendations on the enhancement of TNCs' activities that emanated from numerous intergovernmental contacts, workshops and conferences could not be pursued and acted upon on country-by-country basis.
