Abstract

The study examined the role of multinational corporations (MNCs) in the host country’s integration of international and indigenous businesses, via an empirical investigation of selected MNC in Nigeria. Purpose sampling was employed to select 113 respondents from the selected MNC (i.e. Glaxo SmithKline), World Trade Organization, and Government workers in Nigeria. The study employed both descriptive analyses, ordinary least square, and analysis of variance. Findings revealed as follows: First, the integration of international and indigenous business brings about lists of socio-economic benefits to the host nation. Secondly, Multinational Corporations, World Trade Organization, and Government attitudes contributed positively and significantly to the integration of indigenous and international business (β=0.897, ρ<0.01 for Multinational Corporation; β =0.726 p<0.01 for World Trade Organization and β =0.297, p<0.01 for Government attitude) respectively. Eventually, the study recommended that the host nation should encourage the integration of indigenous and international businesses. Also, multinational corporations should be allowed to thrive in the economy as it helps in boosting the integration of international and indigenous businesses. This study contributes empirical data and advances existing knowledge about the focused research subjects.
