FOREIGN INVESTMENT TRENDS in 2017

FOREIGN INVESTMENT TRENDS in 2017
According to The World Investment Report 2018 Global foreign direct investment (FDI) flows fell by 23 per cent to $1.43 trillion. This is in stark contrast to the accelerated growth in GDP and trade. The fall was caused in part by a 22 per cent decrease in the value of cross-border mergers and acquisitions (M&As).

But even discounting the large one-off deals and corporate restructurings that inflated FDI numbers in 2016, the 2017 decline remained significant. The value of announced greenfield investment – an indicator of future trends – also decreased by 14 per cent.

FDI Inflows to the Islamic Republic of Iran increased by nearly 50 per cent to $5 billion. Following the lifting of sanctions in 2015, the country’s rich reserves started to attract significant foreign participation in the exploration and production of oil and gas.
