HK 2nd in attracting investment (25.6.2015)
For the first time, Hong Kong ranked second in global foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows last year in the United Nations Conference on Trade & Development's World Investment Report. Hong Kong received US$103 billion in investments last year, a year-on-year increase of 39%, placing it second only to the Mainland (US$129 billion) and ahead of the US (US$92 billion), the UK (US$72 billion) and Singapore (US$68 billion) globally. With US$92 billion, Hong Kong also ranks second in terms of FDI outflows, after the US (US$337 billion) and ahead of the Mainland (US$116 billion), Japan (US$1114 billion) and Germany (US$112 billion). Secretary for Commerce & Economic Development Gregory So today said the result highlights Hong Kong's role as a super-connector and a conduit for direct investment, adding that it reflects international investors' affirmation of the city's investment policy. Director-General of Investment Promotion Simon Galpin was also encouraged by the numbers and noted that foreign investors use Hong Kong as a base to invest in the rest of China and the region, while Mainland companies increasingly use Hong Kong as a platform to make global investments and acquisitions.

Turkey ranks 22nd most popular spot for foreign direct investors: Association
Foreign direct investment (FDI) into Turkey was $12.1 billion in 2014, making the country the 22nd most popular spot for investors in the world, while the country is expected take in another $12 billion this year, said Ahmet Erdem, head of the International Investors Association (YASED), in a joint meeting with the United Nation’s Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) on June 24. According to the UNCTAD 2015 Global Investment Report, Turkey took a share of around 1 percent in global investment. “We expect Turkey will continue to maintain its 1 percent share of global investment with around $12 billion of FDI inflow in 2015,” Erdem said. He noted the association members strongly believed Turkey could resolve any problems with the rule of law, tax system, educational system and employment policies in the country through common sense and cooperation to attract more FDI. The UNCTAD report showed global FDI flow decreased to $1.23 trillion in 2014, a 16 percent decrease from the previous year. Erdem said several fragilities in the global economy, political uncertainties and increasing geopolitical risks played a big role in the decreasing trend in the FDI flow across the world. Turkey ranked 22nd in the world, 12th among emerging countries and first in the Western Asia region. Emerging markets main recipients The emerging world’s share in global investments was 55 percent last year, although these countries lured 28 percent lower FDI in 2014 than they did in the previous year. Almost half of the top 10 FDI attracting countries were from the emerging world, according to the report. “China became the largest FDI recipient in 2014 for the first time with more than $129 billion in total. China was followed by Hong Kong with $103 billion and the United States with $92 billion,” said YASED Secretary General Özlem Özyiğit. Companies from the emerging world made more than $468 billion worth of investments abroad, hitting an all-time record. The UNCTAD has expected a gradual increase in the world’s FDI flow in the next three years. According to the report, the global FDI flow will hit $1.4 trillion in 2015, $1.5 trillion in 2016 and $1.7 trillion in 2017. UNCTAD Trend and Data Director Astrit Sulstarova said the latest report revealed many countries have showed progress in liberalizing their investment policies, promoting investment and easing FDI inflow procedures. “The report also showed a strong need for many countries to revise their international investment agreements,” he noted.

It concludes that such transformation needs to encompass agricultural upgrading and diversification towards rural non-farm activities, and to maximise the synergies between the two; and that it needs to foster an increase in rural demand while strengthening supply response. The Report highlights the potential of the infrastructure investment needed to generate increased rural demand, and the importance of appropriate sequencing and design, including labour-based construction methods and local procurement, to maximise its transformational effect. It concludes by outlining policies for rural structural transformation in the areas of finance, agricultural technology, enterprise and innovation, human resources and institutions.

As may be recalled that the IPoA in 2011 had set the target to half the number of LDCs by 2020; at the mid-point since that adoption, this report evaluates the actual status of achievements, and reviews the significance, nature and process of graduation. The report highlights the need for ‘graduation with momentum’ for the countries who are to exit from the LDC category; and emphasises that structural transformation should play the fundamental role in this regard. The launching of the LDC Report 2016 is being organised by CPD as per the request of UNCTAD. You may recall that CPD has been organising the launching events of UNCTAD LDC Reports since 2006.

UNCTAD: Intra-African migration can spur economic growth
The United Nations trade and development body (UNCTAD) has released a new report that suggests African migration can contribute to economic growth on the continent. But only if it's managed legally. The report -- entitled Migration for Structural Transformation -- shows there's more intra-African trade than previously thought -- in sharp contrast to the belief that Africans are leaving the continent in search of a better life in Europe. CGTN's Coletta Wanjohi has more on the research findings.

Foreign direct investment in Saudi Arabia: Riyadh Chamber of Commerce
Riyadh Chamber of Commerce and Industry discusses Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). While foreign direct investment weakened to Saudi Arabia in 2013, the Kingdom remains the most attractive destination for foreign investment in the Arab world according to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and "World Investment Report 2013." The FDI inflows slowed down by 25% in 2012 to USD 12.2 billion. Despite the slowdown Riyadh Chamber of Commerce and Industry sees improved environment for the FDI. "Regarding FDI as well as local investment, had the economy been doing well and we have been doing fine, this will be more attractive for both local Saudi and international businesses; therefore, the future of the FDI in Saudi Arabia is promising. I also believe that SAGIA (Saudi Arabia's General Investment Authority) is doing its best in attracting foreign investments into the Kingdom. At the same time, the government injected huge amounts of funds into the market, which have created a good environment not only for local Saudi investors but also for non-Saudis who are interested in investing in Saudi Arabia. Therefore, I imagine the future is bright in this connection as the Saudi government encourages FDI and has already established SAGIA to look after investments, both internally and externally. I suppose foreign investment is a good indication of how smartly the government is tackling this issue, especially foreign investments, and attracting such assets into the country," said Dr. Mohammed H. Al Kathiri, Secretary-General of RCCI. "Six months ago, the Chamber has formed a committee and termed it the International Cooperation Committee. This committee has comprised several foreign investor CEOs from major companies investing in Saudi Arabia. It watches over obstacles facing those investors who invest in Saudi Arabia and contacts government agencies to facilitate procedures and remove such obstacles. This is essentially a direct support to foreign investors, knowing that all activities of the Chamber are streamlined to facilitate procedural processes and help the private sector in general, including foreign investors as well, to work in a friendly environment," he added.
