We consider the plant location decision of a multinational company (MNC), which has the option to invest in technologically differentiated countries. We show that the MNC's investment decision depends on the market structure of the host countries and on the possibility of exporting by the host-country firms. We also show that a conflict of interest does not necessarily arise between the plant location decision of the MNC and the preferences of the host countries.
