The key role MNEs play in the global economy through international investment, and the changing landscape of such investment as MNEs as well as host and home economies adjust to changing conditions and objectives, make it important to understand trends and developments with respect to FDI and the policy context in which they take place. This second edition of country profiles seeks to contribute to such an understanding by bringing together, in a single collection, the country profiles on inward and outward FDI prepared as part of the Columbia FDI Profiles series. Authored and peer-reviewed by scholars from around the globe, the profiles throw light on the diverse experiences of the economies that are covered with respect to inward and/or outward FDI. Each profile covers country-level developments with respect to inward or outward FDI, the leading corporate players, effects of the recent global crises or other special developments, and key aspects of, and developments with respect to, the national policy scene, following a standardized format as far as possible.
