Abstract: This report contains a brief overview of recent trends in foreign direct investment flows, with particular emphasis on least developed countries, an overview of the differences and complementarities between foreign direct and portfolio investment flows, and a brief analysis of the determinants of foreign direct investment. It reports that despite the slowdown in world economic growth and the financial crisis in many developing countries and in the Russian Federation, global foreign direct investment inflows in 1998 increased significantly. As for differences and complementarities between direct and portfolio investment, they relate to their determinants and their different developmental impacts, particularly those arising from the greater volatility of foreign portfolio flows. The determinants of foreign direct investments fall under three broad categories: the policies of host countries, the proactive measures that countries adopt to promote and facilitate investment, and the characteristics of their economies
