This paper proposes a new model to analyze the mobility of investment flows at the intra-states level, domestic level, intra-regional level and global level. This new model is entitled “the multi-level investment flow monitoring model (MIF-model)”. The MIF-model proposes five new indicators: domestic direct investment growth rate (DDI); intra-regional direct investment growth rate (IDI); total investment formation growth rate (TIF); investment reception performance growth rate (IRP). These indicators are built to analyze the mobility of investment flows in any country or region from a multi-level perspective across time and space. However, the application of the MIF-model is based on the analysis of investment flows behavior in China and ASEAN members in the past forty years.
