She appreciates the need to position the chemical manufacturing firm in the eyes of prospective stakeholders but is unsure where to target. In the hopes of establishing a position that is neither overly exploitive nor overly transformative your boss has asked you for a report detailing the two most extreme positions that the chemical manufacturing firm could occupy. Compare and contrast these two characterizations of the MNE-stakeholder relationship in emerging markets providing examples that will help illustrate your position.
