image of Foreign Direct Investment in Latin America and the Caribbean 2000

This publication sets out and analyses the main foreign direct investment (FDI) trends in the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. In 2000, for the first time in nearly two decades, the Latin American and Caribbean region's FDI inflows dropped by 20% from the previous year's figure to stand at just US$ 74.191 billion.




This study seeks to provide greater insight into foreign direct investment (FDI) in Latin America and the Caribbean. A corporate strategy-based analytical framework has been used to interpret the copious yet heterogeneous information available on the subject. The research programme employed by the Unit on Investment and Corporate Strategies is structured around the examination of specific situations in selected investor countries, FDI host countries and FDI recipient industries in the region. This research, together with the statistical and qualitative data compiled by the Unit's Information Centre, has been used to provide an increasingly comprehensive picture of FDI in the region.
