This publication sets out and analyses the main foreign direct investment (FDI) trends in the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean in 2001. Foreign direct investment (FDI) flows to Latin America and the Caribbean dwindled for the second year in a row in 2001, and preliminary data for 2002 show no signs of a recovery. This trend was observed in both greenfield investment and mergers, acquisitions and privatizations.
