The new FDI statistics database covering FDI statistics from 2014 onwards went online in March 2015 following implementation of revised international standards for data collection.

The OECD has published international direct investment statistics since 1993. This database gathers detailed historical statistics on international direct investment to and from the OECD area with a cut-off date of end-2013. Data are broken down by geographical zone and industrial sector for direct investment flows and stocks. The data are presented in a standardised format combining sectoral and geographical breakdowns for flow and stock data from 1982 onwards.  Summary tables data are presented in US dollars and more detailed country table data is provided in national currency values.  Comparative tables and charts complement the information included for individual countries by geographical and sectoral breakdowns for direct investment flows and stocks. For some countries this information may go as far back as 1980.
