Global foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows declined by 8 per cent in 2014 to an estimated US$1.26 trillion, the latest UNCTAD Global Investment Trends Monitor reports.
China became the world's largest recipient of FDI while the United States fell to the third largest host country. Among the top five FDI recipients in the world, four are developing economies.
The UNCTAD report analyses the most recent trends in global investment and assesses their prospects for 2015. It covers FDI trends in developed, developing and transition economies.
An in-depth analysis of FDI trends will feature in the forthcoming World Investment Report 2015, to be published in June 2015.
