Neither the developing countries' domestic foreign investment promotion efforts (national investment laws) nor international investment initiatives have always been accompanied by an effective system to regulate and screen transfer of technology from one nation to another though unregulated technology can be harmful to the recipient nations. This book comparatively addresses the adequacy of national, regional and international investment systems for regulating transfer of technology by including specific situation of Ethiopian technology transfer system vis-à-vis the Ethiopian Investment Law. The book as well encompasses the lessons learned from other nations (including China, India and Malaysia). In addition,the book encompasses the substantive and formality requirements or standards that guide the investment regulatory organs in developing countries (including Ethiopia) to screen out the unfavorable effects of technology transfer on the entry of the foreign investments. The standards indicated by the book as the benchmark for screening of negative externalities of foreign technology can be employed by the policy makers to maximize the benefits that arise from foreign investment.
