The latest UNCTAD Global Investment Trends Monitor reported that global FDI flows fell for three consecutive years in 2018. Data shows that global FDI fell by nearly a fifth to 1.2 trillion U.S. dollars from about 1.5 trillion U.S. dollars last year. The drop brings FDI flows back to the low point reached after the global financial crisis. Data shows that the decline concentrated in developed countries where inflows fell by as much as 40 percent. Meanwhile, developing economies’ FDI flows have been more resilient with a 3 percent increase in 2018. Director of UNCTAD's Investment Division said the outlook is more positive for 2019 with a rebound expected due to stabilization in Asian countries.
