Abstract. The article is aimed at studying the impact of FDI on the development of the high-tech sector of the economy. R\D effects are analyzed through the location of branches of foreign enter- prises. The positive and negative technological spillover effects and FDI inflow consequences are considered. Foreign investment is assessed as a factor of economic development, modern-ization, income, and employment growth. The radical innovations' implementation by the innovative TNCs have been highlighted. The assessment of the success of the most innova- tive companies confirms the usage of artificial intelligence, platforms, and ecosystems.
