Global FDI drops 18% in 2012: UNCTAD
Al Qarra - The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, UNCTAD has released its world Investment report 2013. The reports states that in 2012, for the first time ever, developing countries absorbed more FDI than developed countries, raking in 52% of global investment flows, versus 42% which went to developed countries. On a global scale, the picture was not good, in 2012, global FDI fell 18% to $1.35 trillion. Axèle Giroud, Economic Affairs Officer, UNCTAD "The sharpest fall has occurred in developing economies, overall as a group they have seen their investment flow decline 32% in contrast to developing countries that saw a decline of 4%, and transition economies that have declined 9%. Developing countries show good signs, 4% is a relatively small decline. They remain attractive." http://www.alqarra.tv/en/global-fdi-drops-18-in-2012-unctad/

UNCTAD Explainer - Information and Communication Technology for Development
Information and communications technologies (ICTs) offer increased potential for advancing progress towards economic and social development objectives. The worldwide spread of mobile telephony and communication systems, the growth of Internet networks and widespread use of broadband infrastructure have an impact on international production and trade. But benefits from new ICTs cannot be taken for granted. Making ICT work for development requires more than expanding access to affordable infrastructure. In order to foster productive and inclusive use of ICTs, Governments need to create legal, institutional and policy frameworks and generate the necessary skills in government, business and civil society. UNCTAD assists governments of developing and transition economies towards their increased participation in the information economy. UNCTAD is also working closely with various parts of the UN and other relevant international institutions. Drawing on its policy research, UNCTAD monitors trends related to the “digital divide”, and advises countries on how to design and implement ICT strategies and policies to better participate in the global information economy.

UNCTAD - eCommerce Week 2018
E-commerce continues to grow in the global economy. According to UNCTAD's 2017 Information Economy Report, the value of global e-commerce increased to an estimated $25 trillion in 2015, up from $16 trillion in 2013. The report stresses that the world is on the cusp of a 'new' digital economy, which will have transformational impacts on the world economy, creating both opportunities and development challenges. Register here: https://goo.gl/GpzF4k UNCTAD's fourth E-Commerce Week will place particular emphasis on the role of digital platforms, a key feature of the evolving digital economy. Digital platforms - often accessed through mobile apps - bring together and aggregate demand and supply in ways that were not possible before (being faster, cheaper and more easily coordinated), including in geographical areas/service sectors traditionally neglected. Digital platforms present new opportunities for international trade and efficient economic activities, including for small businesses. However, the extent to which people and enterprises engage and benefit from such platforms varies considerably. There are indeed concerns that they will disrupt economies, with potential negative consequences for employment and working conditions. The fourth E-Commerce Week, with the theme "Development dimensions of digital platforms", will offer a venue for different stakeholders to discuss key challenges and opportunities arising from such platforms, and put forth concrete actions to harness maximum benefits for developing countries. The 2017 E-Commerce Week was attended by 1,000 representatives, from governments, international organizations, the private sector and civil society from 99 countries, with 170 speakers and moderators. More than 30 sessions addressing policy-relevant topics were organized in collaboration between UNCTAD and another 30 partners. In 2018, the UNCTAD E-Commerce Week will follow the same format, and will feature, among other events, the second session of the Intergovernmental Group of Experts on E-commerce and the Digital Economy on 18-20 April.

Private investment is crucial for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Developing countries, in particular, need to be able to better identify and facilitate the kind of investment that will contribute to their sustainable development. This session will look at practical examples of investment facilitation for sustainable development, as well as the broader mechanisms through which it can be achieved. It will focus on potential tools to measure the quality as opposed to the quantity of investment.

Export-led growth strategies no longer 'viable', Unctad asserts
A new United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (Unctad) study argues that, five years since the onset of the financial crisis, the global economy remains in a structural crisis and it is, therefore, not possible for countries to pursue pre-crisis growth strategies, including export-led development policies. In fact the Trade and Development Report 2013 argues that export-led strategies -- mainstay policies for countries such as China, South Korea and, to a lesser extent, South Africa -- are no longer viable. Instead, more balanced strategies, geared towards generating a greater role for domestic and regional demand, should be pursued.

70 percent of global foreign direct investments goes to Asia
Asian countries are attracting some 70 percent of all global foreign direct investments (FDI), as investment flow to developed countries is on a fall, according to Mukhisa Kituy, the secretary general of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD). Global FDI figures fell 8 percent last year to $1.26 trillion from a year earlier, Kituy said, while addressing the attendees at the G-20 World Association of Investment Promotion Agencies Conference on Foreign Direct Investments in Istanbul on April 27. Developing countries made up a $700 billion portion of these foreign investments, he said. However, the investments to these countries fell 14 percent. Some studies showed international companies were increasing their strategic investments, he added. Structural reforms are by far the most cost-effective way to attract investment, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Ali Babacan said at the event. “There is no more-effective way for a government to act,” Babacan said, praising the role of the private sector. “It has only to change a few articles in a law, or update a regulation, and the environment for investment can be vastly improved,” he said. “Turkey decided to make life easier for business and investment and we succeeded,” he added. The changes introduced in Turkey have been regarded by experts as being critical to the country’s rapid growth in GDP over the past 10 years. Turkey attracted about $6 billion in FDI in 2014. “If you are to spend either $1 million or $1 billion, have the private sector spend that, not the public sector. Be sure that you will get better results in terms of productivity, growth and sustainability,” he said. The deputy PM also highlighted political and economic stability in a bid to create an investor-friendly atmosphere. Babacan added good governance and transparency also contributed to trust building. His list also included warranties for property rights, the superiority of law, human capital, infrastructure and openness to investments. Turkey will help the small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) raise their voices during its continuing term of G-20 presidency, he also said.

India crosses $300 billion milestone
India crosses $300 billion milestone India has received over US $300 billion US Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) milestone between April 2000 and September 2016. The cumulative FDI inflows during the period amounted to US $310.26 billion. With this, India firmly established its credentials as a safe investment destination in the world. Important Facts 33% of the FDI came through the Mauritius route. India received US $101.76 billion dollar from Mauritius between April 2000 and September 2016. Top Destinations: Mauritius route is preferred by investors because they wanted to take advantage of India’s double taxation avoidance treaty (DTAA) with the island nation. Besides Mauritius, other big investors have been from Singapore, US, UK and the Netherlands. Sector wise: India’s services sector received maximum 18% of the cumulative equity FDI inflows. It was followed by construction development, computer software & hardware, telecommunication and automobile. Liberalisation of the FDI policy framework supplemented by major national development programmes such as Make in India, Skill India and Digital India besides increasing competitiveness, have made India the preferred choice for investors globally. Global FDI Status According to the World Investment Report 2016 released by UNCTAD, global FDI flows rose by 38% to $ 1.76 trillion. It is the highest level since the global economic and financial crisis began in 2008. However, it still remains some 10% short of the 2007 peak. The FDI flows in 2016 are expected to decline by 10-15%, reflecting fragility of global economy, persistent weakness of aggregate demand, effective policy measures to curb tax inversion deals. Besides, elevated geopolitical risks and regional tensions may further amplify the expected downturn of FDI flows.

Global foreign direct investment hits highest level since 2008
작년 글로벌 FDI 1천960조원...38% 증가 Global flows of foreign direct investment have reached their highest level since the 2008 global financial crisis. According to the annual World Investment Report by the UN Conference on Trade and Development,... foreign direct investment flows rose 38 percent in 2015 from the year before... to one-point-seven-six trillion U.S. dollars. Asia was the number one destination for foreign investment, followed by Europe and North America. Mergers and acquisitions were the key driver, which increased sixty-six percent in 2015 from the previous year. However,... the report also said foreign investment will likely drop by between ten percent and 15 percent this year due to growing global economic uncertainties and slowing global trade.

FDI destination
The FDI Model developed by Ronald Wall at the Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS) / Erasmus University Rotterdam. Animation was created with Alex Levering. This 3D-GIS animation depicts total foreign direct investment (FDI) received by 1200 cities around the world (2003 - 2014). It is also know as destination FDI. It is based on data by fDi Markets, ORBIS and IHS-Erasmus University. FDI is the investment made by multinational firms in particular cities, into production, control, service and marketing facilities in other cities around the world. These flows of capital tie world cities together into an extremely complex but hierarchic network. FDI is one of the key indicators of a cities integration into the world economy and it explains about 50% of global GDP. These foreign investments are in most cases beneficial to urban development, but can sometimes have a negative impact. Through econometric and GIS analysis I aim to measure the effect of FDI on global cities, or alternatively try to measure the factors which attract these investment to cities. Based on these outcomes I develop urban recommendations and policy how to support a city's economic growth.and make it more competitive. In this globe we see that the world economy is not becoming more homogeneous, but instead that the geographic distribution of FDI is very uneven. It is evident that the global north holds most investment, while the majority of the world's population is in the global south. It is also seen that the highest density of investment is in Europe, North America and Pacific Asia. Understanding the urban determinants of FDI flows (for different industrial sectors) is one of the key challenges in developing truly sustainable cities. Only when we address cities as being part of complex regional and global systems can we really take on this challenge. It is this economic system that forms the backbone of the predicaments of climate change and rising inequality at local, regional and global levels. With big data availability and available algorithms an era has arrived where it becomes possible to technically and politically address the functional performance and structural geography of this disproportionately distributed worldwide system. This research forms part of the upcoming UN-Habitat "State of African Cities 2017" report. This work forms part of the Urban Competitiveness and Resilience (UCR) department at the Institute of Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS) / Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR), The Netherlands. The UCR team consists of Ronald Wall (Department Head), Monserrat Budding-Polo Ballinas, Dorcas Nthoki, Marina Salimgareeva, Taslim Alade.

COP 22 Official Side Event: Investing in the planet #InvestPlanet
Investing in the planet: Green banks and other financial tools to scale up mitigation technologies Hosted by: Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE), Imperial College London and Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) Held: 14 November 2016 at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) 22nd Conference of Parties (COP22) in Marrakech, Morocco The Paris Agreement is in place. How do we implement it? Reducing greenhouse gas emissions to meet the global climate change goals requires a step change in technology deployment for the technologies in use or in the late stages of development. The right financial mechanisms need to be in place to encourage investment in low carbon technologies and storage. Experience on the ground shows that getting the financial mechanisms right can be challenging. This session explains the issues and presents solutions for policy makers and investors alike. We need an enabling environment of policy and sufficient financing. There’s a real need around the world to understand the right framework to get the kinds of capital flows that we need into these low carbon sectors. What are some practical ways to do all this? The event took place at the COP22 conference in Marrakech. Morocco and highlighted that financing is essential for both mitigation and adaptation, and in the broader context of the sustainable development goals.
