Ari Kokko

I am interested in a wide range of issues in economic development, international trade, and international business, both in a Nordic and an international context. Although my primary competence is in international economics, I also aim to understand historical and institutional drivers of development. Whenever possible, I try to combine the macro and meso perspectives applied in international economics with insights from international business, where the individual firm is often in focus. My main research projects focus on FDI spillovers, Economic development and upgrading in Vietnam and China, and The internationalization of Swedish SMEs.
