Cross-border capital flows play a key role in supporting investment, and ultimately, economic growth. Until recently, regulators tended to favor foreign direct investment (FDI) because direct investment in the country’s productive assets has traditionally been viewed as more stable than portfolio flows. Yet recent strengthening of portfolio flows to emerging markets and an investment gap in many countries are forcing a reassessment: Market-based investment cannot be ignored and could help in developing public-private partnerships to facilitate a more diversified and even allocation of international financial resources. With a special focus on Asia, the report first assesses the attractiveness of Asian countries based on the 2016 Global Opportunity Index (GOI) and provides a closer look at the composition of Asia’s capital inflows—focused on FDI and portfolio investment.
