What is meant by multinational companies MNCs?

Multinational companies, as the name suggests, are companies whose ownership and control are not limited to a single country. These companies are managed in more than one place within and outside the country. The country where the company originated is the parent country, and the other countries except the parent country are subsidiaries or host countries. The distribution of goods in those countries is operated by subsidiary companies, resulting in the globalization of business.

Lets learn first, What are multinational Companies?

A multinational corporation (MNC) is a corporate organization that owns and controls the production of goods or services in at least one country other than its home country. To be considered a multinational company, a business must derive more than 25% of revenue from the host to the other countries. While it may sound dreamy to work for multinational companies, many issues are associated with them. Since it operates in different environments, ethical issues, cultural conflict, labor issues arise, and so on. One main reason why multinational companies shift to host countries is the low labor wage in that country. So logically, these companies pay lower wages to their labor in the host country than in the home country.
