Les Investissements Directs à l’Etranger (IDE) peuvent être des outils précieux de développement. Cependant, toutes les formes d’IDE ne sont pas également bénéfiques pour le pays d’accueil. Cet article analyse les caractéristiques et déterminants des IDE dans un pays en voie de développement typique: Le Ghana. Par ailleurs, des domaines de politique économique déterminantes sont indiqués, afin de permettre au Ghana à la fois d’attirer davantage d’IDE et d’augmenter les bénéfices qu’il tire de ces flux de capitaux. Cette analyse combine des méthodes qualitative et quantitative et repose en partie sur des données tirées de l’Etude “Entreprises” réalisée en 2007 par la Banque Mondiale, et en partie sur une étude que nous avons nous même menée auprès de 54 entreprises multinationales opérant au Ghana.
