03/11/2016 - FDI down 5% in the first half of 2016
In the first half of 2016, global FDI flows decreased by 5%, as compared to the second half of 2015, to USD 793 billion but remain above half-year trends observed in 2013 and 2014. In Q1 2016, FDI flows rose to USD 513 billion due to large flows in the United States and, to a lesser extent, in the United Kingdom after Royal Dutch Shell bought British Gas. FDI flows then decreased 46% to USD 279 billion in the second quarter.
The OECD regularly publishes analysis on key developments and trends in global FDI flows using the most recent FDI statistics and data on mergers and acquisitions (M&A). We also disseminate the results of all investment-related work underway at the OECD.
