The slow recovery of FDI flows in 2010 masked starkly divergent trends among regions: while East and South-East Asia and Latin America experienced strong growth in FDI inflows, those to Africa, South Asia, West Asia, transition and developed countries continued to decline. Inward FDI flows to Africa varied between subregions. In developing Asia, ASEAN and East Asia attracted record amounts of FDI, while in West Asia the impact of the global economic crisis continued to hold back FDI. Latin America and the Caribbean witnessed a surge in cross-border M&As, mainly from developing Asia. In transition economies, the marginal rise of flows to the CIS did not compensate for the sharp drop in South-East Europe. Among developed countries, flows to Europe and Japan declined, overshadowing the increased flows to the United States. All three groups in the structurally weak, vulnerable and small economies--LDCs, LLDCs and SIDS--saw their FDI inflows fall.
Some major developments feature in regional FDI:
* Intraregional FDI in Africa is increasing but has yet to realize its potential.
* FDI outflows from South, East and South-East Asia have been rising rapidly, demonstrating new and diverse industrial patterns.
* State-owned enterprises lead outward FDI from West Asia with a strategy of improving the competitiveness of the home economies.
* Latin America and the Caribbean are witnessing a surge in resource-seeking FDI from developing Asia.
* The investment link between developing and transition economies is gaining momentum, fuelled by the commodity boom and government support within both group of economies.
* The restructuring of the banking industry in developed countries resulted in both significant divestments of foreign assets and the generation of new FDI.
* A new plan of action for LDCs is proposed within an integrated policy framework on investment, technical capacity-building and enterprise development.
* TNC participation has led to significant infrastructure build-up in LLDCs.
* TNCs are contributing to the economic challenges of climate change adaptation in SIDS.
