Summary and conclusions

The annual publication Foreign Investment in Latin America and the Caribbean, 2002 Report consists of three chapters. The first chapter examines global and regional FDI trends in terms of their geographical and sectoral distribution and looks at the various modalities of such flows, as well as the major foreign companies operating in Latin America and the Caribbean. The principal corporate strategies driving FDI in the region are also analysed. The second chapter focuses on the experience of the Andean Community, a subregion which has, for the most part, maintained existing levels of FDI inflows, while most others have not. The final chapter deals with financial services, interpreting the new situation in the region in the context of changes in the international market, national policy initiatives and the new corporate strategies of the principal transnational banks operating there.
