OECD International Direct Investment Statistics 2014

image of OECD International Direct Investment Statistics 2014

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.

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.
