What is FOREIGN DIRECT INVESTMENT? What does FOREIGN DIRECT INVESTMENT mean? FOREIGN DIRECT INVESTMENT meaning - FOREIGN DIRECT INVESTMENT definition - FOREIGN DIRECT INVESTMENT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A foreign direct investment is an investment in the form of a controlling ownership in a business in one country by an entity based in another country. It is thus distinguished from foreign portfolio investment by a notion of direct control. The origin of the investment does not impact the definition as an FDI: the investment may be made either "inorganically" by buying a company in the target country or "organically" by expanding operations of an existing business in that country. Broadly, foreign direct investment includes "mergers and acquisitions, building new facilities, reinvesting profits earned from overseas operations and intra company loans". In a narrow sense, foreign direct investment refers just to building new facility, a lasting management interest (10 percent or more of voting stock) in an enterprise operating in an economy other than that of the investor. FDI is the sum of equity capital, other long-term capital, and short-term capital as shown the balance of payments. FDI usually involves participation in management, joint-venture, transfer of technology and expertise. Stock of FDI is the net (i.e., outward FDI minus inward FDI) cumulative FDI for any given period. Direct investment excludes investment through purchase of shares. FDI is one example of international factor movements. A foreign direct investment (FDI) is a controlling ownership in a business enterprise in one country by an entity based in another country. Foreign direct investment is distinguished from foreign portfolio investment, a passive investment in the securities of another country such as public stocks and bonds, by the element of "control". According to the Financial Times, "Standard definitions of control use the internationally agreed 10 percent threshold of voting shares, but this is a grey area as often a smaller block of shares will give control in widely held companies. Moreover, control of technology, management, even crucial inputs can confer de facto control." According to Grazia Ietto-Gillies (2012), prior to Stephen Hymer’s theory regarding direct investment in the 1960s, the reasons behind Foreign Direct Investment and Multinational Corporations were explained by neoclassical economics based on macro economic principles. These theories were based on the classical theory of trade in which the motive behind trade was a result of the difference in the costs of production of goods between two countries, focusing on the low cost of production as a motive for a firm’s foreign activity. For example, Joe S. Bain only explained the internationalization challenge through three main principles: absolute cost advantages, product differentiation advantages and economies of scale. Furthermore, the neoclassical theories were created under the assumption of the existence of perfect competition. Intrigued by the motivations behind large foreign investments made by corporations from the United States of America, Hymer developed a framework that went beyond the existing theories, explaining why this phenomenon occurred, since he considered that the previously mentioned theories could not explain foreign investment and its motivations. Facing the challenges of his predecessors, Hymer focused his theory on filling the gaps regarding international investment. The theory proposed by the author approaches international investment from a different and more firm-specific point of view. As opposed to traditional macroeconomics-based theories of investment, Hymer states that there is a difference between mere capital investment, otherwise known as portfolio investment, and direct investment. The difference between the two, which will become the cornerstone of his whole theoretical framework, is the issue of control, meaning that with direct investment firms are able to obtain a greater level of control than with portfolio investment. Furthermore, Hymer proceeds to criticize the neoclassical theories, stating that the theory of capital movements cannot explain international production. Moreover, he clarifies that FDI is not necessarily a movement of funds from a home country to a host country, and that it is concentrated on particular industries within many countries. In contrast, if interest rates were the main motive for international investment, FDI would include many industries within fewer countries.

ITV Tonight Who Owns Britain
Broadcasted November 2014 Some of our best loved British brands, including HP Sauce, Heathrow Airport and Cadbury are now foreign owned. A third of the UK's infrastructure including energy and transport is owned overseas. And of the top British quoted companies in the UK, more than half the investment in those companies is by foreign investors. Some argue that it is vital for our jobs and wages that Britain remains such an attractive place for foreign investment. Others are concerned that we have given up control of the country's "crown jewels". "We have a very weak takeover code, ultimately shareholders take the final decision, there isn’t any due regard to the interest of the workforce or the public interest. And so you end up with a situation where you make shareholders potentially even richer, but see loss of jobs, worse terms and conditions, and of course the community having no say at all." (Frances O’Grady, TUC General Secretary). "These are things that are really part of the fabric of the nation. I don’t think they should be in foreign hands and I think it’s a danger that they’re in foreign hands" (Alex Brummer, Author of “Britain for Sale”). One of the most controversial foreign takeovers in recent years was the sale of British confectionary maker Cadbury. For decades, Cadbury was known for the generous conditions and social benefits it provided for its workforce. But the acquisition of the firm in 2010 was met with anger and disappointment by many workers. And Kraft later closed Cadbury's Bristol factory, in spite of an earlier promise to keep it open. Kraft Food, now rebranded as Mondelez International, says it is planning a 75 million pound investment which would secure the future of the Bournville factory in Birmingham and the next generation of manufacturing. But while Cadbury is still a well loved brand, it is no longer a British company in its own right. That has led to accusations from the Unite Union that the government is "impotent" in being able to deal with foreign acquisitions. "The reality is if we keep losing our major British companies to foreign investors, and they then take the intellectual rights and the revenues from those companies abroad, then eventually the British economy will suffer. Jobs will suffer. And the British economy will be less able to bounce back from recessions as it’s struggling to do currently." (Steve Preddy, Unite). In the car industry foreign investment has helped to save and create jobs. Jaguar Land Rover was bought by the Indian group TATA five years ago, and has since enjoyed record success. Former Director General of the CBI Lord Digby Jones is a corporate ambassador for the firm. He says JLR's story proves that firms can still be British, even if they are no longer British owned. "The nationality of it really doesn’t matter and when you think that JLR is seen as a British company, it behaves like a British company, and what’s more internally it’s treated as a British company. You know, people don’t actually internally at JLR think of it as part of Mumbai." (Lord Digby Jones, Former CBI Director General). Currently the Government can only intervene in takeovers when national security, financial stability or media plurality are threatened. But the Business Secretary Vince Cable would like the powers to go further. "There is an ambiguous area which is called the public interest test, and I think we should certainly have in reserve a power for ministers to intervene where there is a genuine national interest, particularly around science and where we have a big capability in research and development." (Vince Cable MP, Business Secretary). Britain is also a major investor in companies overseas, making it one of the biggest spenders when it comes to foreign investment. "France - one of the key brands is Moet champagne. A third of that is owned by Diageo, a British business, so there’s an example in reverse. I think we’ve got to put these issues into context and not get out of proportion. We invest more overseas than foreign companies invest in us." (Professor Dominic Swords, Henley Business School).

46 percent of Oman’s foreign investment from England
Britain’s Arabic Media Spokesperson Edwin Samuel conducted his first interview in English with the Times of Oman. On one of his visits to Oman, the Foreign Commonwealth Office (FCO) representative described Oman’s relation to the UK, past and present. “46 percent of the direct investments from foreign countries into Oman is from the UK. It’s not just about British companies wanting to make good investments, though they do, it’s also about the fact that there’s a recognition that the economic and social vision from His Majesty the Sultan, is one that puts Oman back in its historical role of being the gateway to the Arabian Peninsula and the rest of the world. “Oman is one of those countries where we have a huge affinity, not just on a governmental level or royal family level where the ties are thick, but also on a people to people level. We understand moderation, and so the idea of dialogue with all, openness, tolerance, the Omani social model is very much the British social model. We feel a great sense of being at home here. We look to Oman to be one of those outward looking countries in the region that can help build bridges rather than walls,” Samuel said. According to Samuel, being an Arabic media spokesperson was the United Kingdom’s way of opening dialogue between the two regions. “The idea behind this job started ten years ago after September the 11th. The British government felt that it was important that we were able to project our voice and our point of view to Arabic speaking audiences in their own language. It really coincided with the 24/7 Arabic news channels at that time,” Samuel said. Website: http://timesofoman.com Facebook: http://facebook.com/timesofoman Twitter: http://twitter.com/timesofoman

Foreign Direct Investment
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/investing-tips/foreign-direct-investment Foreign Direct Investment By www.ProfitableInvestingTips.com Follow the money is age old advice for knowing why something is happening. In this case we would like to follow the money that goes into foreign direct investment. Foreign direct investment is done by folks with lots of money and the intention to stay on course and make a profit. If you are looking for offshore investment ideas, take a look at where foreign direct investment goes year after year after year. There have been changes afoot regarding where foreign direct investment is going. A very useful reference in this regard is the just published United Nations study, World Investment Report 2013. We have used 2007 and 2012 as bookend comparison years as 2007 was just before the onset of the worst recession in three quarters of a century and 2012 is the most recent year reported. Of note is that direct foreign investment has fallen in the large majority of nations but there are exceptions that should help guide investors with their fundamental analysis of where to put their money in the years ahead. First take a look at the data and then read about foreign direct investment. Foreign Direct Investment Comparison of 2007 and 2012 In Billions of USD Taken from the United Nations World Investment Report 2013 Nation 2007 2012 European Union 859 323 UK 200 71 France 96 37 Germany 80 67 North America, incl. Mexico363 408 Canada 117 54 USA 216 329 Mexico 31 26 Japan 23 123 China 84 84 China, Hong Kong 62 83 South Korea 9 33 India 25 9 South Africa 6 4 Russian Federation 57 51 Brazil 35 -3 The largest gain in foreign direct investment on our chart is in the USA followed closely by Japan (113 billion to 100 billion). As a percentage increase Japan out performs everyone with an increase of more than 400%. Other significant performers are South Korea with a more than 200% increase in foreign direct investment and Hong Kong with a twenty-five percent increase. It is significant that the BRICS nations which were thought to be ready to move up economically lost as a group. China stayed put at $84 Billion. Russia fell from $57 Billion to $52 Billion and South Africa fell from $6 Billion to $4 Billion. Brazil fell off the charts going from $35 Billion in direct foreign investment to a negative $3 Billion because investors are taking money out of the country! Direct Foreign Investment: What Is It and Why Do It? In general, foreign direct investment includes mergers and acquisitions, the building of new facilities, reinvestment of profits earned overseas and cross border loans within offshore operations. Basically companies invest offshore because they expect to make a profit over the long term. Because of the long timeline needed to research new projects and develop them, this sort of investment is typically well thought out. Reasons to invest offshore aside from expected profits include low taxes, tax holidays of the twenty-five year or longer variety, preferential tariffs, investment loan subsidies, free land or land subsidies, R&D support, proximity to profitable markets and more. Can You Follow the Money and Make a Profit? There are some useful lessons to be learned from reading the results of the World Investment Report 2013. A lot of the hype about Brazil and the rest of the BRICS nations was largely that, just hype. Brazil is attached at the hip to China and when events in China trigger the next big stock market crash Brazil will suffer. Money is going where there is economic, social and political stability, high end technology, democracy instead of dictatorship and nations that are interested in getting foreign investment instead of driving it away. Hong Kong is preferred over China because of the democratic residual from British colonial days. Japan is in an economic resurgence and Korea is largely keeping pace. The USA remains the most economically open economy and thus benefits the most from direct foreign investment during troubled times. When you decide where to put your money look for growing economies and economic sectors, tax advantages to your investment in a given economy and political stability so that the next government does not decide to confiscate your investment. http://youtu.be/pmqXFPWG87s

China was top destination for foreign direct investment last year, topping U.S.
China was the number one target for foreign direct investment last year... topping the U.S. for the first time in more than a decade. The country′s steady growth was cited as the main reason, along with a general trend toward developing countries. Kwon Soa reports. China became the top destination for foreign direct investment last year,... according to the latest report by the UN Conference on Trade and Development. This is the first time it′s topped the United States since 2003. Foreign businesses invested over 1-hundred-27 billion U.S. dollars into China last year, a 3-billion-dollar rise from the previous year. The U.S., on the other hand, saw investments plunge to 86 billion dollars... from over 2-hundred-30 in 2013. That put the U.S. in third behind China and Hong Kong, followed by Singapore, Brazil and the UK. The U.S. was the only developed country in the top five. The UN conference′s director of investment and enterprise, James Zhan, says China′s performance is attributed to its steady economic growth. He added there have been changes in the investment areas from manufacturing toward the service sector... and from labor-intensive fields to tech-intensive ones. And investors are generally shifting away from developed economies to developing ones, with foreign direct investment in developing economies having doubled since the 2008 global financial crisis. Asia alone has accounted for 15 percent of the inflow last year,... the highest amount ever. Although Korea′s FDI inflow has been among the bottom 7 out of 8 Asian countries for six years, according to a report from last year, the foreign direct investment amount pledged to Korea reached a record high of 19 billion U.S. dollars last year, ...with most investments coming from the EU. And on a report on foreign direct investment potential, Korea ranked fourth out of 177 countries. Kwon Soa, Arirang News.

Such a move was proposed last week by EU President JeanClaude Juncker. Junckers proposal for a new investment screening framework is expected to grant EU members the power to interfere with foreign direct investment cases regarding strategic assets, especially those under Statecontrolled or financed enterprises. We hope the EU will follow basic rules of the World Trade Organization, especially the nondiscriminatory principle, to avoid any interference created by the rising protectionism sentiment, Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said. He said that the EU also should not send chaotic and negative signals to the rest of the world. China and the EU have been each others major trading partners in past decades. Last year, Chinas trade volume with EU nations reached 3.61 trillion yuan $552 billion, a yearonyear increase of 3 percent, according to the General Administration of Customs. Meanwhile, the country made overseas direct investment of $ 170 billion last year, with Germany, Britain and the United States as the most popular destinations. However, Chinese company purchases have faced interference in countries such as Germany. According to a statement by the Chinese Chamber of Commerce in Germany, Chinese companies in Germany have concluded that they are likely to face even more political uncertainties in the future that impose additional risks on overseas investment, considering the commissions latest proposals and current changes to Germanys investment law. The EU has advocated trade liberalization and investment facilitation, and already has received real benefits, Lu said. Everyones interests are served in developing an open world economy when opportunities and benefits can be shared in openness to achieve positive outcomes, he said. The loss outweighs the gains to close the door and engage in protectionism for shortterm interests, he added. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

According to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, the UK didn't do as badly as some would expect after listening to all the Brexit doom and gloom being peddled by the Remoaners. And research by European private equity and venture capital trade association Invest Europe shows that investors are also not thinking of holding back either. Firstly, according to the UK Conference on Trade and Development, in the first six months of 2018, the UK has secured more foreign direct investment than all other countries except China. As you can see from the graph the UK gained $65.5 billion in inward investment, approaching the $70.2 billion that China achieved and ahead of the $64.5 into the US and $44.8 billion into the Netherlands. And an Invest Europe survey shows that 62% of investors are more likely to invest in a post Brexit UK, which is up on last year's 31%. Not bad, but do bear in mind that continued uncertainty caused by Remainers' constantly harping on that the UK is no good may hold companies back from mergers and acquisitions, with the proportion of executives saying they will actively pursue M&A over the next year is at a four year low of 45% compared to 65% a year ago reports City AM. And speaking to City AM, Steve Ivermee, EY’s transaction advisory head, said that uncertainty is giving some pause for thought but that it looks like people are temporarily holding back, not actively retreating from M&A. So, overall not a bad picture going forward - I just wish the Remoaners would realise that the UK is going to be just fine and stop doing it down! So, what do you think? Please leave a comment below.

What is an Foreign Direct Investment?
Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events. Our word of the day is “Foreign Direct Investment” Foreign direct investment simply referred to as FDI is an investment in a business by an investor from another country for which the foreign investor has control over the company purchased. The Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development defines control as owning 10% or more of the business. Businesses that make foreign direct investments are often called multinational corporations or multinational enterprises. A MNE may make a direct investment by creating a new foreign enterprise, which is called a greenfield investment, or by the acquisition of a foreign firm, either called an acquisition or brownfield investment. In the context of foreign direct investment, advantages and disadvantages are often a matter of perspective. An FDI may provide some great advantages for the MNE but not for the foreign country where the investment is made. On the other hand, sometimes the deal can work out better for the foreign country depending upon how the investment pans out. Ideally, there should be numerous advantages for both the MNE and the foreign country, which is often a developing country. By Barry Norman, Investors Trading Academy - ITA

2015 CA Summit - Opening the Golden Gate: Strategies to Attract Foreign Direct Investment
For decades, California has been the premier gateway for foreign investors seeking a foothold in the U.S. Today, the state is even more attractive to foreign companies, including government-controlled enterprises, as they face rising costs and stalled growth at home. Among U.S. states, California is the largest recipient of direct foreign investment, or FDI, particularly from Canada, Japan, China and the UK. And California is poised to get even more. However, a complicated ecosystem of business interests, advocacy groups, government agencies and news media threatens to put the brakes on external investment and constrain its contribution to the state’s economy. This panel will examine the climate for FDI in California and discuss how to maximize its benefits. Moderated by Curtis S. Chin, Asia Fellow, Milken Institute; Trustee, World Education Services; Former U.S. Ambassador to the Asian Development Bank Caroline Beteta, President and CEO, Visit California Juan Carlos Briseño, Trade and Investment Commissioner, ProMéxico Sonnet Hui, Executive Project Director, Hazens Group Brian Peck , Deputy Director, International Affairs and Business Development, California Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development John Scull, Managing Director, Southern Cross Venture Partners
