image of World Investment Report 2013
The World Investment Report 2013 (WIR13) presents the latest data and analysis of trends in foreign direct investment (FDI) and related policies. The Report analyses the sharp decline in global FDI flows in 2012, which was particularly marked among developed countries. As a consequence, developing economies received more FDI than developed countries for the first time ever. Moreover, developing countries were the source of almost one third of global FDI flows. Over the period 2013–2014, FDI flows are projected to rise moderately. However, a number of potentially destabilizing factors may add to the uncertain outlook for the global economy and thus constrain the pace of FDI recovery
