World Investment Report

The UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) issues a yearly report analysing international capital flows: the World Investment Report. The latest issue of the report focuses on what it calls shift towards services”.

What kinds of services are attracting flows of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), and in what countries? What is the difference between the “offshoring” of services and “outsourcing”? What countries and regions are poised to attract the most investment capital in the near future?

These are some of the questions discussed in this edition of World Chronicle in the company of Karl P. Sauvant, Director of UNCTAD’s Division on Investment, Technology and Enterprise Development.
