A collapse in foreign direct investment into mainland China has brought FDI to a 30-year low. Beijing's State Administration of Foreign Exchange reported a significant drop in net FDI inflows, raising concerns about the country's economic stability. This decline marks a sharp contrast to previous years when China was a top destination for foreign investment.

Terminology used by professionals in the foreign direct investment (FDI) world can be confusing. In this video series, the fDi team lifts the veil on common FDI terms and explains their significance in the global investment landscape. Understanding these terms is crucial for investors looking to navigate the complex world of international investment.

Foreign direct investment in China dropped in the first two months of the year, continuing a fall that started after economic growth began to slow down. The ongoing trade tensions between China and the United States have also contributed to the decline in FDI, as investors are becoming increasingly cautious about investing in the region.

Net foreign direct investment (FDI) into the Chinese mainland plummeted to a 23-year low last year, according to government data. This sharp decline in FDI has raised concerns about the country's economic prospects and its ability to attract foreign capital. The government is now working on implementing policies to stimulate FDI and boost economic growth.

In the first quarter of this year, the declaration amount for foreign direct investment (FDI) has once again set a new record, despite the overall decrease in net FDI inflows. This indicates that while the total amount of FDI entering China may be declining, there are still significant investments being made in key sectors of the economy.

On 24 January 2024, the European Commission unveiled its proposals to reform the current EU Foreign Direct Investment framework. These reforms aim to enhance transparency, improve cooperation among member states, and strengthen the EU's ability to protect its strategic interests. The proposed changes come in response to the changing global FDI landscape and the need for more robust investment screening mechanisms.

In this graphic, we illustrate the top ten emerging markets according to their foreign direct investment (FDI) momentum in 2024. These markets have shown significant growth potential and are attracting increasing amounts of FDI from around the world. Understanding the trends in FDI flows to these markets is essential for investors looking to capitalize on emerging opportunities.

Understanding the ever-evolving global FDI landscape is crucial amid growing regulatory complexities in cross-border transactions. As governments around the world implement stricter investment screening measures, investors need to stay informed about the latest developments and navigate the regulatory environment effectively. This will help them make informed decisions and mitigate risks in their international investment activities.

A year ago, as North Dakota lawmakers discussed banning firms from China and other “foreign adversaries” from buying real estate, one of the key concerns was the impact on foreign direct investment in the state. The proposed ban sparked a debate about the balance between national security concerns and the need to attract foreign investment to support economic growth. Ultimately, the ban was not implemented, but the discussions highlighted the complexities of FDI regulation and the challenges of balancing competing interests.
