Inward and Outward FDI Country Profiles
Edited by Karl P. Sauvant, Thomas Jost, Ken Davies, and Ana-Maria Poveda-Garces (New York: VCC, 2011).
This compilation contains a series of standardized country profiles of inward and outward foreign direct investment (FDI), peer-reviewed by a global network of experts. The publication is intended to contribute to the analysis of trends in foreign direct investment and policy issues related to them. The reports, which cover inward and outward FDI for 22 countries (13 developed economies and 9 emerging markets), include statistics on FDI stocks and flows, output and employment of foreign affiliates, and sectoral and geographical FDI distributions. The reports also list principal foreign affiliates (for inward FDI), principal multinational enterprises (for outward FDI), together with lists of recent major M&As and greenfield investments. The standardized template used to produce the reports is also included. This volume is designed to become a reference tool for anyone interested in foreign direct investment.
