TitleSharing Asia's Dynamism : Asian Direct Investment in the European Union
Imprint Geneva, United Nations. 1997


This report, prepared by UNCTAD with the support of the Government of Thailand, aims at developing a clear picture of foreign direct investment (FDI) from Asia in the European Union (and Central and Eastern Europe), explaining this picture, and identifying policy measures that can help increase Asian investment in the European Union. Part one deals with the role of Asian (both Japanese and developing Asian) FDI in the global economy, the trends in Asian FDI in the European Union and an overview of Asian investment in Central and Eastern Europe. Part two seeks answers to questions such as why Asian FDI in Europe is low; why Asia should invest in Europe; what relationship exists between Asian exports and FDI; what the competitive advantages of Asian enterprises are in trade; and what determines the competitive advantages of Asian investors. Part three explores the possible policy implications of the findings of the report, building on existing partnerships. They include actions by Asian Governments and firms, actions by the European Union, its member countries and European firms, as well as joint actions (strengthening the international framework and practical cooperation).
