Hide / Show Abstract

Driven by technological change, global competition and the liberalisation of markets, foreign direct investment (FDI) plays a key role in the process of global economic integration. OECD compiles and disseminates reliable and up-to-date statistics which are essential for a meaningful interpretation of investment trends for informed policy making. These statistics are based on official reports by OECD countries for investments world-wide. Internationally comparable data makes it possible to measure the degree of economic integration and competitiveness of markets. The data in this publication are also available in database form on the OECD iLibrary under the title OECD International Direct Investment Statistics (http://dx.doi.org/10.1787/idi-data-en).

  • Introduction

    Preliminary estimates for 2013 indicate that the recovery of cross-border investments is proving elusive after the 24% decline recorded in 2012: global foreign direct investment flows increased by only 4.5% in 2013, to USD 1 333 billion, and remain over 30% below the pre-crisis levels reached in 2007.
