image of World Investment Report 1996

Worldwide foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows increased phenomenally between 1994 and 1995, setting a new record. This surge in FDI inflows is one of the many vital topics examined in this year's edition of the Report. It also analyzes the interrelationships between trade, investment and international policy arrangements; scrutinizes policy issues and examines the factors underlying new developments. This Report is an essential reference.




As part of the increasing globalization of economic activities, international production by transnational corporations is growing rapidly. The World Investment Report 1996 provides an analysis of current global and regional trends in international production and looks into the particular theme of the interrelationships between investment and trade. It is a topic of particular interest at this time, given negotiations and discussions on international frameworks for investment in various fora -- a topic addressed in WIR 96 in some detail.
