Abstract

This paper mainly researches the relationship between the technology standard and effects of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) technology spillovers by analyzing the product life cycle theory. FDI technology spillovers depend on not only the technology stock, but also technology standards of foreign firms. By analyzing product life cycle theory, this paper studies the inevitability of foreign firm transferring technology standard to host country. Simultaneously, this paper explores that technology standards can certainly block the technology evolution of host country and impede its technology innovation, which can help foreign firms to obtain the monopoly rent and stable power.
