    Abstract

    This paper provides a revised measure of regulatory restrictions on inward foreign direct investment (FDI) for OECD countries and extends the approach to 13 non-member countries. The methodology is largely similar to that adopted in the previous version of the OECD indicator and covers three broad categories of restrictions: limitations on foreign ownership, screening or notification procedures, and management and operational restrictions. The FDI restrictiveness indicator captures statutory deviations from "national treatment", i.e. discrimination against foreign investment. When combined with other factors having an influence on foreign investment decisions, it has proven to be a good predictor of countries' inward FDI performance. L'indice OCDE des restrictions réglementaires sur les investissements en provenance de : Révisions et extension à plus de pays. Ce document présente une mesure révisée des restrictions réglementaires envers les influx des investissements directs étrangers (IDE) pour les pays de l'OCDE et étend la mesure à 13 pays non-membres. L'approche est dans son ensemble similaire à celle adoptée lors de la version antérieure de l'indicateur de l'OCDE, et couvre essentiellement trois catégories de restrictions: les limites sur la part de firmes domestiques pouvant être détenues par le capital étranger, les procédures d'examen sélectif et de notification, et les restrictions concernant la gestion et les opérations des entreprises. L'indicateur de restrictions réglementaires mesure les déviations par rapport au "traitement national" c'est-à-dire les discriminations à l'encontre des investissements étrangers. Combiné à d'autres facteurs ayant une influence sur les décisions d'investissement à l'étranger, cet indicateur contribue à expliquer la performance des pays en matière d'influx des IDE.
