This obviously has a positive impact on the balance of payments situation. Instead, they are generally there for monetary gain. Also, most of the jobs created by multinational companies are high tech.
If the government uses them well, they can benefit the economy. It paves way for the mergers and acquisitions resulting in improved economies of scale. This is also a mechanism to exploit the abundant human resources which Bangladesh has.
Also, we will have a closer look at some of the negative points where multinational companies exert their power to bully countries. Apart from the benefits, MNC culture has its own set of drawbacks.
Part 2: Disadvantages of Multi-National Corporations Many developing countries have been unable to control multinational corporations because of the power that they wield over these countries. However, there are few oil companies which have been known to misuse this economic power to exploit the countries that they operate in.

Hence, in purely financial terms, multinational companies do wield tremendous influence on the day to day operations of many countries.
The economic power that many multinational companies wield is commendable, to say the least.
