Home economy heterogeneity in the determinants of China’s inward foreign direct investment
Ping Zheng, Hui Tan
Technology and finance have emerged as critical factors in the transition to a low-carbon economy, and thereby in international climate change negotiations. A potential source of such resources, that is already having an impact in countries around the world through foreign direct investment (FDI), is transnational corporations (TNCs). The scale and scope of this phenomenon remains under research, including sector-specific drivers pushing firms to invest abroad and the determinants leading to investments in specific host economies. This paper seeks to shed light on these issues through an analysis of FDI in renewable electricity generation and the manufacture of related equipment. FDI in these areas has grown tremendously over the period 2003–2010. Using a framework developed in the World Investment Report 2010, the contribution of various drivers and determinants are discussed as they relate to the observed trends in FDI. The findings suggest that those governments seeking to target FDI as a source of external climate change finance must be mindful in particular of the motivations of the investors they are targeting, as well as the state of their domestic energy policies.

Foreign direct investment in renewable energy: Trends, drivers and determinants

Innovation-related activities have undergone steady internationalization in recent years. Host economies now need to offer a favourable environment to companies in which to develop their innovation-related activities. This paper presents an econometric study of the locational criteria of innovation-related activities. The results show the importance of market size, agglomeration effects, and, to a lesser extent, the quality of public governance, to the location of international activities in innovation-related activities. The overall degree of a country’s openness to foreign direct investment also appears to be a significant locational determinant. The results give insights on the locational strategies of transnational corporations in various industries and across differing types of economy.

Global foreign direct investment (FDI) flows rose moderately to $1.24 trillion in 2010, but were still 15 per cent below their pre-crisis average. This is in contrast to global industrial output and trade, which were back to pre-crisis levels. UNCTAD estimates that global FDI will recover to its pre-crisis level in 2011, increasing to $1.4–1.6 trillion, and approach its 2007 peak in 2013. This positive scenario holds, barring any unexpected global economic shocks that may arise from a number of risk factors still in play.
