Indonesia’s economy is on the rise and thus seeing the country take its rightful position as a major destination for foreign direct investment (FDI). In terms of future outlook, Indonesia is entering a ‘sweet spot’ as a convergence of its young, working population with that of relatively stable inflation and sustained economic growth is fuelling consumer spending. Finally, the country’s resilience over the course of the global financial crisis illustrated the merits of its immense population and economic self-reliance.

This figure dropped to R62bn in 2014. In Africa, South Africa is the third largest recipient of inward investment after Nigeria and Mozambique.

China was top destination for foreign direct investment last year, topping U.S.
 
02:08
China was the number one target for foreign direct investment last year... topping the U.S. for the first time in more than a decade. The country′s steady growth was cited as the main reason, along with a general trend toward developing countries. Kwon Soa reports. China became the top destination for foreign direct investment last year,... according to the latest report by the UN Conference on Trade and Development. This is the first time it′s topped the United States since 2003. Foreign businesses invested over 1-hundred-27 billion U.S. dollars into China last year, a 3-billion-dollar rise from the previous year. The U.S., on the other hand, saw investments plunge to 86 billion dollars... from over 2-hundred-30 in 2013. That put the U.S. in third behind China and Hong Kong, followed by Singapore, Brazil and the UK. The U.S. was the only developed country in the top five. The UN conference′s director of investment and enterprise, James Zhan, says China′s performance is attributed to its steady economic growth. He added there have been changes in the investment areas from manufacturing toward the service sector... and from labor-intensive fields to tech-intensive ones. And investors are generally shifting away from developed economies to developing ones, with foreign direct investment in developing economies having doubled since the 2008 global financial crisis. Asia alone has accounted for 15 percent of the inflow last year,... the highest amount ever. Although Korea′s FDI inflow has been among the bottom 7 out of 8 Asian countries for six years, according to a report from last year, the foreign direct investment amount pledged to Korea reached a record high of 19 billion U.S. dollars last year, ...with most investments coming from the EU. And on a report on foreign direct investment potential, Korea ranked fourth out of 177 countries. Kwon Soa, Arirang News.

Foreign Direct Investment
 
05:24
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/investing-tips/foreign-direct-investment Foreign Direct Investment By www.ProfitableInvestingTips.com Follow the money is age old advice for knowing why something is happening. In this case we would like to follow the money that goes into foreign direct investment. Foreign direct investment is done by folks with lots of money and the intention to stay on course and make a profit. If you are looking for offshore investment ideas, take a look at where foreign direct investment goes year after year after year. There have been changes afoot regarding where foreign direct investment is going. A very useful reference in this regard is the just published United Nations study, World Investment Report 2013. We have used 2007 and 2012 as bookend comparison years as 2007 was just before the onset of the worst recession in three quarters of a century and 2012 is the most recent year reported. Of note is that direct foreign investment has fallen in the large majority of nations but there are exceptions that should help guide investors with their fundamental analysis of where to put their money in the years ahead. First take a look at the data and then read about foreign direct investment. Foreign Direct Investment Comparison of 2007 and 2012 In Billions of USD Taken from the United Nations World Investment Report 2013 Nation 2007 2012 European Union 859 323 UK 200 71 France 96 37 Germany 80 67 North America, incl. Mexico363 408 Canada 117 54 USA 216 329 Mexico 31 26 Japan 23 123 China 84 84 China, Hong Kong 62 83 South Korea 9 33 India 25 9 South Africa 6 4 Russian Federation 57 51 Brazil 35 -3 The largest gain in foreign direct investment on our chart is in the USA followed closely by Japan (113 billion to 100 billion). As a percentage increase Japan out performs everyone with an increase of more than 400%. Other significant performers are South Korea with a more than 200% increase in foreign direct investment and Hong Kong with a twenty-five percent increase. It is significant that the BRICS nations which were thought to be ready to move up economically lost as a group. China stayed put at $84 Billion. Russia fell from $57 Billion to $52 Billion and South Africa fell from $6 Billion to $4 Billion. Brazil fell off the charts going from $35 Billion in direct foreign investment to a negative $3 Billion because investors are taking money out of the country! Direct Foreign Investment: What Is It and Why Do It? In general, foreign direct investment includes mergers and acquisitions, the building of new facilities, reinvestment of profits earned overseas and cross border loans within offshore operations. Basically companies invest offshore because they expect to make a profit over the long term. Because of the long timeline needed to research new projects and develop them, this sort of investment is typically well thought out. Reasons to invest offshore aside from expected profits include low taxes, tax holidays of the twenty-five year or longer variety, preferential tariffs, investment loan subsidies, free land or land subsidies, R&D support, proximity to profitable markets and more. Can You Follow the Money and Make a Profit? There are some useful lessons to be learned from reading the results of the World Investment Report 2013. A lot of the hype about Brazil and the rest of the BRICS nations was largely that, just hype. Brazil is attached at the hip to China and when events in China trigger the next big stock market crash Brazil will suffer. Money is going where there is economic, social and political stability, high end technology, democracy instead of dictatorship and nations that are interested in getting foreign investment instead of driving it away. Hong Kong is preferred over China because of the democratic residual from British colonial days. Japan is in an economic resurgence and Korea is largely keeping pace. The USA remains the most economically open economy and thus benefits the most from direct foreign investment during troubled times. When you decide where to put your money look for growing economies and economic sectors, tax advantages to your investment in a given economy and political stability so that the next government does not decide to confiscate your investment. http://youtu.be/pmqXFPWG87s

00:46
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.

Foreign direct investment in Saudi Arabia: Riyadh Chamber of Commerce
 
02:47
Riyadh Chamber of Commerce and Industry discusses Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). While foreign direct investment weakened to Saudi Arabia in 2013, the Kingdom remains the most attractive destination for foreign investment in the Arab world according to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and "World Investment Report 2013." The FDI inflows slowed down by 25% in 2012 to USD 12.2 billion. Despite the slowdown Riyadh Chamber of Commerce and Industry sees improved environment for the FDI. "Regarding FDI as well as local investment, had the economy been doing well and we have been doing fine, this will be more attractive for both local Saudi and international businesses; therefore, the future of the FDI in Saudi Arabia is promising. I also believe that SAGIA (Saudi Arabia's General Investment Authority) is doing its best in attracting foreign investments into the Kingdom. At the same time, the government injected huge amounts of funds into the market, which have created a good environment not only for local Saudi investors but also for non-Saudis who are interested in investing in Saudi Arabia. Therefore, I imagine the future is bright in this connection as the Saudi government encourages FDI and has already established SAGIA to look after investments, both internally and externally. I suppose foreign investment is a good indication of how smartly the government is tackling this issue, especially foreign investments, and attracting such assets into the country," said Dr. Mohammed H. Al Kathiri, Secretary-General of RCCI. "Six months ago, the Chamber has formed a committee and termed it the International Cooperation Committee. This committee has comprised several foreign investor CEOs from major companies investing in Saudi Arabia. It watches over obstacles facing those investors who invest in Saudi Arabia and contacts government agencies to facilitate procedures and remove such obstacles. This is essentially a direct support to foreign investors, knowing that all activities of the Chamber are streamlined to facilitate procedural processes and help the private sector in general, including foreign investors as well, to work in a friendly environment," he added.

Presentación del estudio de la Agencia Internacional de la Energía World Energy Investment Report 2018, con la participación de Alessandro Blasi, Senior Programme Officer, y Alberto Toril, Consultant, AGENCIA INTERNACIONAL DE LA ENERGIA. Por tercer año consecutivo, la inversión global en energía cayó hasta los 1,8 trillion USD en 2017, una reducción del 2%, en términos reales, respecto a 2016. Más de 750 billion USD se destinaron al sector eléctrico, mientras que 715 billion USD se invirtieron en suministro de petróleo y gas a nivel mundial. Las inversiones con respaldo gubernamental, representan cada año la mayor parte de la inversión energética mundial, debido a que las empresas estatales han mostrado mayor resiliencia en el ámbito del petróleo y gas, así como en generación eléctrica térmica, que las compañías privadas. El informe destaca también el creciente papel que las políticas gubernamentales están teniendo en el impulso del gasto privado.
