Abstract: World Investment Report 1998:Trends and Determinants: is the eighth in an annual series which has been recognized as the most up-to-date, comprehensive information source about foreign direct investment at the global and regional levels. It documents the continuing growth of foreign direct investment, which reached new record levels in 1997. Apart from standard chapters, featuring trends on the global and regional levels, the Report covers policy developments, as well as the top 100 largest transnational corporations worldwide and the top 50 largest transnational corporations in developing countries. Special attention is paid to the impact of the financial crises in Asia on foreign direct investment flows to and from that region; success stories in terms of attracting foreign direct investment in Africa; the interrelationship between foreign direct investment, exports and the balance of payments and the absorptive capacity for foreign direct investment in Central and Eastern Europe. In addition, the World Investment Report 1998 highlights the host country determinants of foreign direct investment flows. As in the past years, the Report offers useful empirical information and policy analysis for decision makers in government, business and researchers in academia alike. [English only]
