Foreign Direct Investment for Development: Maximising Benefits, Minimising Costs : Overview (Google eBook)
OECD Publishing, Jan 1, 2002 - Electronic books - 228 pages
Foreign direct investment (FDI) is an integral part of an open and effective international economic system and can provide a major catalyst to development. However, the benefits of FDI do not accrue automatically and evenly across countries, sectors and local communities. This publication looks at the impact of FDI on development issues and considers the policies required to maximise its benefits for developing countries. Aspects discussed include: the macroeconomic benefits for host countries; recent FDI trends; its impact on growth; foreign trade linkages; technology transfer; human capital enhancement; market structures and competition; social and environmental consequences; and country experiences in realising the benefits of FDI.
