China was top destination for foreign direct investment last year, topping U.S.
 
02:08
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.

Is Foreign Direct Investment Good or Bad for the U.S.? International Ownership (2006)
 
43:18
In 1990 and 2012, respectively, only two foreign investments have been blocked by U.S. presidents,[15] though others have been considered and, often, less explicitly opposed: 1990: President George H. W. Bush voided the sale of MAMCO Manufacturing to a Chinese agency, ordering China National Aero-Technology Import & Export Corporation to divest themselves of Seattle-based MAMCO[16] 2000: NTT Communications' acquisition of Verio[citation needed] 2005: The acquisition of IBM's personal computer and laptop unit by Lenovo was approved by President George W. Bush[15] 2005: The acquisition of Sequoia Voting Systems of Oakland, California, by Smartmatic, a Dutch company contracted by Hugo Chávez's government to replace that country's elections machinery[17] 2005: In June 2005 a CNOOC Group (a major Chinese State-owned oil and gas corporation) subsidiary (CNOOC limited, publicly listed on the New York NYSE and Hong Kong stock exchanges) made an $18.5 billion cash offer for American oil company Unocal Corporation, topping an earlier bid by ChevronTexaco. While this offer was not opposed by the CFIUS and the Bush Administration, it was criticized by several Congressmen and, following a vote in the United States House of Representatives, the bid was referred to President George W. Bush, on the grounds that its implications for national security needed to be reviewed. On July 20, 2005 Unocal Corporation announced that it had accepted a buyout offer from ChevronTexaco for $17.1 billion, which was submitted to Unocal stockholders on August 10. On August 2 CNOOC Limited announced that it had withdrawn its bid, citing political tensions in the United States. 2006: State-owned Dubai Ports World's planned acquisition of P&O, the lessee and operator of many terminals, mostly for container ships, in several ports, including in New York-New Jersey and others in the US[citation needed]. This acquisition was initially approved by the CFIUS and then President G.W. Bush, but was eventually opposed by Congress (Dubai Ports World controversy). 2012: Ralls Corporation, owned by the Chinese Sany Group,[18] was ordered by President Barack Obama to divest itself of four small wind farm projects located too close to a U.S. Navy weapons systems training facility in Boardman, Oregon In February 2006, Richard Perle gave more insight into CFIUS when he related to CBS News his experience on the panel during the Reagan administration, "The committee almost never met, and when it deliberated it was usually at a fairly low bureaucratic level." He also added, "I think it's a bit of a joke if we were serious about scrutinizing foreign ownership and foreign control, particularly since 9/11."[22] Others emphasize the crucial role that foreign direct investment plays in the U.S. economy, and the discouraging effect that heightened scrutiny may cause. Foreign investors in the United States, much like U.S. investors elsewhere, bring expertise and infusions of capital into often-struggling sectors of the U.S. economy. In a February 2006 interview with the New York Times, another former Reagan administration official, Clyde V. Prestowitz Jr., noted that the United States "need[s] a net inflow of capital of $3 billion a day to keep the economy afloat.... Yet all of the body language here is 'go away.'" And, as Secretary Powell once remarked, "money, capital, is a coward; it will go nowhere where it is put in fear." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Committee_on_Foreign_Investment_in_the_United_States

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.

U.S.-China FDI Update 2018
 
02:12:59
For more on the U.S.-China FDI Project, visit www.ncuscr.org/fdi. After reaching a record $60 billion in 2016, foreign direct investment (FDI) flows between the United States and China have been squeezed into a diminished position by forces on both sides of the Pacific. In 2017, Chinese FDI in the United States dropped by more than one-third as Beijing re-imposed capital controls and Washington toughened screening of high-technology acquisitions; the value of newly announced transactions dropped by more than 90%. The outlook for 2018 is more uncertain still. President Trump has designated China a strategic competitor, a label not applied since 2000, and Washington is contemplating a disruptive array of more restrictive China policies to respond to national security concerns and the perceived lack of reciprocity, including greatly intensifying the investment screening process. On April 10, the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations and Rhodium Group hosted an event in Washington, D.C., to release two studies that will shape the public debate on these urgent topics: Two-Way Street, the definitive analysis of U.S.-China FDI trends from 1990 through 2017; and New Neighbors, the seminal analysis of local impacts from Chinese FDI across every U.S. congressional district. With 12 months of brand new data and a number of recent policy developments in both countries, the report authors provided a thorough and timely presentation of research on U.S.-China FDI, followed by a panel discussion with American legal and business leaders. This event was part of the U.S.-China FDI Project, a multi-year research initiative that aims to provide greater transparency on FDI flows between the United States and China. Speakers and Panelists: Amy Celico is a principal of Albright Stonebridge Group (ASG), and leads the firm’s China team in Washington, D.C. Drawing on more than 20 years of experience working on Chinese political and economic issues and developing U.S.-China trade policy positions, Ms. Celico develops and implements tailored strategies for clients, helping them deepen relationships with key stakeholders, succeed with M&A transactions, resolve complex problems, and build and expand their business. Steven Foland is currently managing director and head of banking, Americas, for China International Capital Corporation (CICC). Steven was formerly head of the Asia Investment Banking Group and co‐head of Software Banking at Stifel, head of technology banking for non‐Japan Asia for Credit Suisse, and held various positions with Morgan Stanley in both New York and Hong Kong. Report author Thilo Hanemann is director of Rhodium Group’s cross-border investment practice. His research assesses new trends in global trade and capital flows, related policy developments, and the political and commercial dynamics of specific transactions. He is also a senior policy fellow at the Mercator Institute for China Studies, Europe’s biggest China think tank, located in Berlin.

What is an Foreign Direct Investment?
 
01:20
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

China becomes world's largest recipient of FDI
 
00:40
China has become the world's largest recipient of foreign direct investment in the first half of 2018, by attracting an estimated inflow of 70 billion US dollars. That's according to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development. Research shows global FDI fell by 41 percent during this period, to an estimated 470 billion dollars worldwide. The decline is mainly due to US parent companies releasing large payments of accumulated foreign earnings by their overseas affiliates in response to tax reforms.

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.

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

Book Launch: "Developing China: The Remarkable Impact of Foreign Direct Investment"
 
01:35:02
The Scholl Chair in International Business and the Freeman Chair in China Studies at CSIS present a book launch with Professor Michael Enright on Developing China: The Remarkable Impact of Foreign Direct Investment. Professor Enright will present the key themes of his research, followed by a panel discussion. One of the most important features of China’s economic emergence has been the role of foreign investment and foreign companies. The importance goes well beyond the USD 1.6 trillion in foreign direct investment that China has received since it started opening its economy. Using the tools of economic impact analysis, the author estimates that around one-third of China’s GDP in recent years has been generated by the investments, operations, and supply chains of foreign invested companies. In addition, foreign companies have developed industries, created suppliers and distributors, introduced modern technologies, improved business practices, modernized management training, improved sustainability performance, and helped shape China’s legal and regulatory systems. These impacts have helped China become the world’s second largest economy, its leading exporter, and one of its leading destinations for inward investment. The book provides a powerful analysis of China’s policies toward foreign investment that can inform policy makers around the world, while giving foreign companies tools to demonstrate their contributions to host countries and showing the tremendous power of foreign investment to help transform economies.

China's foreign investment soar - economy

China's foreign investments have hit a new record. ... euronews, the most watched news channel in Europe Subscribe for your daily dose of international news, curated and explained:http://eurone.ws/10ZCK4a Euronews is available in 13 other languages: http://eurone.ws/17moBCU http://www.euronews.com/2013/09/09/china-s-foreign-investment-soar China's foreign investments have hit a new record. Last year the country jumped into the top three of the world's investors for the first time. It was third behind Japan in the second spot and the number one - the US. Leading the charge are private companies, with the sovereign wealth fund the China Investment Corporation not far behind, using part of the government's huge foreign exchange reserves. It recently acquired a 10 percent stake in London's Heathrow Airport for 450 million pounds (534 million euros) Beijing has encouraged Chinese companies to "go international" with the result that foreign investment have risen from the equivalent of 52 billion euros in 2010 to 66.5 billion last year. Speaking at the China International Fair for Investment and Trade, Wang Yanguo, the deputy head of the country's International Chamber of Commerce for the Private Sector said: "Chinese investors' outbound investment used to focus on traditional industries, but now they've shifted their focus to both traditional and newly emerged industries. Such development momentum is very strong especially in the advanced manufacturing sector and high-tech industries." The Ministry of Commerce said overseas investment is set to grow 15 percent this year through deals like the $4.7 billion (3.5 billion euro) takeover of America's Smithfield Foods - the world's biggest pork producer. That will be the largest ever Chinese acquisition of a US company. It was just approval by the US Committee on Foreign Investment. The Ministry's Department of Outward Investment and Economic Cooperation said just over 79 percent of Chinese investors have made profits or not lost money on their foreign purchases. A report compiled jointly by the Ministry of Commerce, the National Bureau of Statistics and the State Administration of Foreign Exchange revealed the top destination for overseas Chinese investment last year was Hong Kong. The US rose to second place with $4.05 billion (3.05 billion euros)invested, surging 123.5 percent from 2011. At end of of 2012, Chinese companies employed 1.49 million staff overseas, about half foreign citizens, the report added.

On November 18, 2016, in Beijing, NCUSCR President Stephen Orlins lead a discussion with the report's authors.

FDI is now a two-way street, driven by a complex mix of players and motives, with a diverse industry and geographic composition.

Korea unveils plan to boost foreign investment
 
02:07
The Korean government is aiming to lure more foreign direct investment to boost the economy,... and is promising a better climate for investment and quality of life improvements. Kim Min-ji reports. The Korean government on Thursday unveiled a set of measures to draw more foreign direct investment to the nation, in a bid to spur economic growth by boosting production and creating jobs. The Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy's blueprint includes a relaxation of regulations on foreign investment and incentives to encourage global companies to set up their headquarters in Korea. First, the goverment plans to ease and clarify foreign investment regulations. Many economists have pointed out that one of the biggest obstacles to foreign investment to Korea is the maze of confusing regulations on overseas investors. The government also plans to encourage global enterprises to establish regional headquarters and research and development centers in Korea. The blueprint also includes a series of incentives for foreign investors, including quality of life improvements. Finally, the government also plans to map out strategies to attract more foreign investment in the future. Although Korea has seen the amount of foreign direct investment jump in recent years,... the country is still far behind other global players. In 2012, foreign direct investment in Korea came to 147 billion U.S. dollars,... far below the U.S., which had 3-point-9 trillion dollars,... and Britain at 1-point-3 trillion. In addition, Korea's foreign direct investment in terms of GDP is the lowest in the OCED. FDI accounted for just 12-point-7 percent of GDP in 2012. That puts Korea second to last among the 34 OECD countries,... and far below top-ranking countries such as Luxembourg, Ireland and Britain. But with the newly announced plan, Korea is now aiming to become one of the world's top 10 investment destinations in the coming years. Kim Min-ji, Arirang News.

China's Foreign Direct Investment Drop "Quite Worrying"
 
01:07
Foreign direct investment in China dropped to $9.27 billion in January, the Ministry of Commerce reported yesterday. That's 7.3% lower than last year, and follows eight straight months of decline. In particular, investment from Japan fell 20% to $640 million in. US investments also recorded a drop of 20 percent to $270 million. At the same time, more investment money is exiting the country. January saw a jump of 12.3% in non-financial outbound FDI to just under $5 billion. Foreign investors are finding it less attractive to invest in China, owing to the rise in labor and land costs. And labor-intensive manufacturers are seeking opportunities in other Asian countries, according to a HSBC Holdings report last month. Senior economist Dariusz Kowalczyk, at Hong Kong's Credit Agricole CIB told Bloomberg that the drop is "quite worrying" because it follows a string of declines. It's also the largest fall since July and the longest period of decline since the global financial crisis of 2008-2009.
