To conclude, if the political risk theoretically means anything, it means thinking about the
future role of Nation-States, of culture, history and geography and market forces in the
shaping of the international economic order. In considering the political risks in their
strategies, MNCs as the symbolic motors of the globalization should be aware of this
theoretical implication. For the economic research this means that efforts should be made,
not only to improve the risk/returns tradeoff of the MNCs (through predictability,
quantification or integration in decision making process, risk transfer-methods and risk
avoidance methods) but also to integrate the 'Miwelt' and the 'Umwelt', that is, to
contribute to the economic and social development of the involved population in the host
government and to improve the quality of their environment. In this sense, improving the
social conditions of the population of host countries as well as the quality of their
environment constitute one of the comprehensive and best management tools of political
risk. The strategy just described calls for pertinent strategy aimed at strengthening the
reputation of integrity of the subsidiary in the market place and in the public eyes. Siegwart,
Caytas and Mahari (1989, p. 82) referred to them as 'good will strategies' that encompass
following measures;
· Support social, cultural or charitable projects
· Maintain a harmonic relationship with the media
· Maintain a conflict-free, trusting relationship with supervisory and licensing authorities
· Maintain the most comprehensive political and social contacts possible
· Contribute to legitimate goals of relevant interest groups
· Avoid any proximity to conflicts of interest or corruption
· Demonstrate a healthy loyalty to the country and to the local community
· Avoid compromising business relationships
· Observe high standards in the selection and behavior of employees
· Avoid open display of prosperity
· Exhibit gener
