Since the 1990s, trade costs have been decreasing dramatically and trade volume worldwide also has been increasing. Multinational Corporations (MNCs) are the main players for this kind of globalization. UNCTAD (2009) documents that there were about 82,000 MNCs with about 810,000 foreign affiliates in 2008. Those foreign affiliates accounted for approximately a third of world exports and employed 77 million. Since MNCs offshores its production facilitates for some parts of its functions or production stages but not the whole production process itself, it is necessary to understand patterns of the MNCs’ activities based on their production stages or functions.
