INNOVATIONS OF TRANSNATIONAL CORPORATIONS IN TODAY’S CONDITIONS
The article considers the issue of innovation activities carried out by transnational corporations, as well as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the innovative sphere as such. The motivation behind international companies’ reorientation on the emerging economies in part of innovations in R&D and the need for unique competitive advantages over other companies is also discussed. Digitization, robotization, and automation are becoming more and more in demand and will be thus financed by transnational corporations with the increasing intensity.
