2012 was a very difficult year for the global foreign direct investment market, with the second biggest decline in FDI since the start of the world recession. But there were exceptions, with a number of countries experiencing strong growth in inward investment projects.
The fDi Report 2013 - the annual assessment of crossborder investment based on the fDi Markets database from the Financial Times - identifies the latest foreign direct investment trends across the globe.
The report provides a detailed breakdown of FDI projects by continent, including the leading countries attracting activity; the top sources for investment; the leading sectors active in the region; and an overview of the recent major projects.
This year's report has a special focus on the BRIC economies and examines the strong link between corporate tax rates and FDI performance.
