ABSTRACT
In this paper, empirical analysis has been conducted at the firm level in terms of foreign direct investment (FDI) directions, subsidiary ages, and industry's life cycle, to examine the relationship between a country's FDI activities and its exports, using the data of Korean firms. Empirical result supports that outward FDI would have a more positive effect on home country exports if the subsidiaries are located in less developed countries than in developed countries; if they are relatively new; if the industry is in a declining stage in the firm's home country.
