A new report and investor survey published today by the World Bank Group concludes that, on balance, foreign direct investment (FDI) benefits developing countries, bringing in technical know-how, enhancing work force skills, increasing productivity, generating business for.
In development literature Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is traditionally considered to be instrumental for the economic growth of all countries, particularly the developing ones.
It acts as a panacea for breaking out of the vicious circle of low savings/low income and facilitates the import of capital goods and advanced technical knowhow.
Over the past decade, foreign direct investment (FDI) around the world has nearly tripled, and with this surge have come dramatic shifts in FDI flows. In Foreign Direct Investment, distinguished economists look at changes in FDI, including historical trends, specific country experiences, developments in the semiconductor industry, and variations in international mergers and acquisitions.

1 Introduction Foreign direct investment (FDI) by multinational corporations (MNCs) has grown rapidly in recent decades,1 and developing countries have attracted an increasing share of it: $ billion inor more than 36% of all inward FDI flows (UNCTADxvii). This study seeks to understand the relationship between foreign direct investment (FDI) and political violence in developing countries.
