Summary
This report presents the latest trends in foreign direct investment (FDI) and contains an in-depth analysis of policy developments, investment prospects, and key emerging issues related to investment. The report finds that in 2016, global flows of FDI fell by about 2 per cent, to $1.75 trillion. Investment in developing countries declined even more, by 14 per cent, and flows to LDCs and structurally weak economies remain volatile and low. Although UNCTAD predicts a modest recovery of FDI flows in 2017-2018, they are expected to remain well below their 2007 peak. Furthermore this report builds on the track record and presents policy advice on how to deal with close to 3,000 old-generation investment treaties. A key challenge for policymakers in today's global economy is digital development. The theme chapter of the Report shows that the digital economy is having a major impact on global patterns of investment. It provides important insights on the implications of the digital economy for investment policies designed for the analogue era, and suggests how investment policy can support digital development
