    Abstract

    Global foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows are likely to have fallen by more than twenty percent in 2008, and will probably decline further in the near future. Inflows to developed countries were most affected. However, for developing economies and those in transition, the worst is yet to come. Thus, governments must resist the temptation of engaging in protectionism. This article discusses current trends in FDI flows.
