The study employs display research to investigate how to draw value-added FDI in the face of turbulence along with the global economy and the COVID-19 pandemic to the Saudi Market. These findings have led to an important mode of foreign direct investment, so they are extremely important as compared to previous studies. The findings reveal that trade openness, infrastructure availability, and market size all play a role in attracting foreign direct investment into a region. Foreign direct investment can be beneficial to both investment companies and host governments. Furthermore, the COVID-19 shock will amplify the current worldwide trend of shortening supply chains and reducing FDI growth. This is a critical juncture that the Saudi government should be encouraged to develop strategies that would lessen the economic impact of such changes on the host country.</p> <p>It also aids the country's economic development and socio-economic transition. Several factors influence Saudi Arabia's ability to attract foreign direct investment, including growth rates, GDP, exports, and imports. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the government must ensure that the nation remains attractive in order to retain maximum foreign direct investment flows, as this encourages long-term economic growth by rising human capital investment. Therefore, in the face of tumultuous global economic conditions and the COVID-19 pandemic, attracting foreign direct investment can become a source of economic dependency and technology transfer diversification within the Kingdom.</p> 2022-05-20T10:47:06+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://scitecresearch.com/journals/index.php/jrbem/article/view/2130 The Effect of Design Management Capability on Product Innovation for SMEs in Indonesia 2022-06-01T17:42:33+00:00 Harry Setiawan harrysetiawan@ekonomi.untan.ac.id Bintoro Bagus Purmono bintorobagus@ekonomi.untan.ac.id <p>Small, and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are the backbone of the national economy. The increase in the number of SMEs in Indonesia must be accompanied by an increase in product innovation performance. Innovating products means contributing to the creation of competitive advantage, increased efficiency, and increased competitiveness, thus helping to ensure future performance. Bringing innovation to MSME products requires an effort to present creative visualization activities of concepts, plans, and ideas, represented in sketches and provide instructions on making something that does not yet exist, or so-called design management capability. This research investigated the extent to which the influence of the design management capability of MSME activists in Indonesia could contribute to presenting innovative products. This research provided a novelty to the construction of design management capability that combined the dimensions of previous research. The data collection method employed a questionnaire, with 360 respondents selected through the purposive sampling technique. Using Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) with AMOS 24 tool, the results of this study indicated that design management capability had a significant effect on product innovation</p> 2022-06-01T17:42:33+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
