ABSTRACT
The article explains the emergence of national champions in different industries. National champions tend to have mixed parentage, rather than necessarily always being created by the state. within the European Union, national champions are more often the creature of government and preserving domestic employment levels has often been a key factor. National champions often emanate from smaller countries with an aspiration to be recognized. Examples of national champions are Nokia, General Electric, McDonalds, and British Leyland.
