Foreign Direct Investment
In: Asia-Pacific Trade and Investment Report 2012: Recent Trends and Developments
The Asia-Pacific region has shown resilience in the face of recent economic crises and, after a shortlived slowdown, has continued to attract FDI flows. FDI plays a central role in supporting the efforts of Asia-Pacific countries to build more sustainable development practices. Even though the global economy remains under strain, global FDI inflows rose by 16% in 2011 to $1.5 trillion, driven by increased inflows to developed countries.
