1. What Problems might arise now or in the foreseeable future in light of development in international labor law? In today’s global economy the direct relationship between foreign direct investment and employment in developing countries is very hard to define because globalization is a “multi-faceted phenomenon”. Each facet may have different effects on employment varying by country, time, industry, and polices. This widespread variation stems from the large range of economic, social, legal, regulation, and policy changes that make it hard to separate the specific effects.

Like many other developing nations Devinco wants to utilize its abundance of natural resources and deregulated low capital costs to increase its foreign direct investment and manufacturing exports. Foreign direct investment provides them with external resources, like capital and technology, which they hope will support
