This publication sets out and analyses the main foreign direct investment (FDI) trends in the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. In 2006, foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows to Latin America and the Caribbean (excluding the main financial centres) continued their upward trend, reaching over US$ 72 billion, for an increase of 1.5% over 2005. At the same, however, the region's share of global FDI inflows declined, as flows increased more rapidly in other parts of the world.

Foreign direct investment and transnational corporations in Latin America and the Caribbean

In 2006 net FDI inflows in Latin America and the Caribbean, excluding the main financial centres, amounted to US$ 72.44 billion. This is 1.5% higher than the 2005 figure and confirms that investment levels have stabilized after having declined early in the decade. This stability contrasts, however, with the estimated 34% growth in global FDI flows.
