Global foreign direct investment reached its highest level since 2008
The UNCTAD World Investment Report 2016 says that the global recovery in foreign direct investment (FDI) was strong in 2015, with foreign direct investment flows jumping by 38%. However, part of the growth in FDI was due to very large corporate re-configurations by multinational enterprises, including shifting their headquarters for strategic reasons.
The Report, subtitled Investor Nationality: Policy Challenges, provides insights into the increasingly complex ownership structures of multinational enterprises, analyses national and international investment policy practices around the world, and proposes a new framework for handling ownership issues.
Packed with fresh data, the report provides key national, regional and global investment data and analysis.
