Abstract

This presentation examines changes in global foreign direct investment (FDI) flows and stocks in the past quarter of century (1991–2016) for countries and territories for which data are available. It also asks how those changes affect our way of explaining FDI and other activities of multinational enterprises (MNEs), and draws basic public policy conclusions from the evolving landscape of FDI and our understanding about the main driving forces behind those changes.
