The outward FDI from emerging economies to developed countries has generated much interest among international business researchers and policy makers, especially with regard to their location and sectoral patterns. On the basis of a large pan-European firm level dataset, this study provides a comparative analysis of the main characteristics of Indian and Chinese companies operating in Europe in general and their geographical agglomeration in particular. The study focuses on the impact of firm specific advantages on the co-location of Indian and Chinese multinationals in Europe. A non-parametric statistic test is carried out to complete the analysis.
