ASEAN Foreign Direct Investment Trends - Implications for EU-ASEAN Relations

10 May 2005


In the two decades between 1980 and 2000, global foreign direct investment (FDI) flows have nearly tripled. While up until the 1980s, FDI was viewed with considerable wariness by developing countries, owing to its potential benefits, it is now considered a substantial part of the development process. In this paper, Megha Mukim, reviews the growing importance of investment flows to ASEAN (Association of South-East Asian Nations) countries with the objective of analysing the region’s relationship with the European Union.
