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 reconfigurations 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.
