Foreign Direct Investments in Southeast Asia
Abstract: Foreign direct investment has been of great importance in
economic growth and global economic integration over the last decades.
South East Asia has been part of this development with rapidly increasing
inflows of FDI. However, there are large variations over time and between
countries in the region as regard to the policies towards FDI, and in
actual inflows of FDI. This chapter aims at examining the size of FDI in
South East Asia and the trends in it. The main determinants of FDI in
Southeast Asia as well as their effect on the host countries are also
discussed and examined.
