Abstract: Some countries take measures (HCMs) to support outward FDI as they see it in the interest of firms headquartered in their territories to acquire a portfolio of locational assets abroad. Host countries welcome such measures as a complement to their own actions to attract FDI in the interest of promoting their development. Thus, by providing for an enabling environment for their firms to invest in developing countries, home country governments can help development. From a policy perspective, developed countries have removed virtually all their restrictions on outward FDI. Moreover, their development assistance programmes sometimes contain a component of outward FDI promotion, including information dissemination, financial or tax incentives and investment insurance, and many developed countries espouse policy positions that support outward FDI promotion through such measures. The actual application of such measures remains however largely within the unilateral discretion of home countries. A number of them can also be found in international investment agreements, however, suggesting that they lend themselves to international agreements if all parties so desire
