Inward flows of foreign direct investment (FDI), 2007-2016

Source: UNCTAD,


UNCTAD helps governments to promote and facilitate investment; it compiles, validates, and disseminates data on FDI. This map shows both the stocks (proportional circles) and changes over the course of the last decade (color shading). Data on the growth of FDI inflows show marked contrasts which are not correlated with the data on volume; some economies no longer attract foreign investment (in blue), while others, on the contrary, capture it owing to their growth, tax concessions, or because they are tax havens.
