En este artículo se investigan los determinantes de la inversión extranjera directa (IED) en Colombia, utilizando una detallada base de datos a nivel de firma. En particular, se comparan las características de las empresas que reciben IED y de aquellas que no reciben este tipo de inversión. También, se estima una ecuación de los determinantes de la probabilidad de que una empresa tenga IED y otra sobre los determinantes de la participación extranjera en el capital de las empresas. Los resultados indican que la probabilidad de que una empresa tenga IED disminuye para empresas localizadas fuera de Bogotá, en sectores económicos diferentes al petróleo y en empresas pequeñas y medianas. Por el contrario, esta probabilidad aumenta en empresas inscritas en el registro nacional de valores, en las involucradas en actividades de comercio exterior y para aquellas empresas en sectores con mayor intensidad del capital. Los resultados son similares para la segunda ecuación.
