The Truth is that Inward FDI can be good or bad depending on the economic structure/ system of the host country and how the macrieconomic environment is managed as well as how competitive are the markets in that economy. Foreign Direct Investments should rather be welcome and taken advantage of by both developing and developed countries to foster economic development and growth, absorb better technology and management tecchniques, lower cost of funds, better global exposure and improve international competitiveness. However, only for reasons of security and eliminate money lundering strict vigil on the sources of foreign investment should be checked, there should not be over-dependence on FDI (% of FDI to total domestically financed investment should not be very high and should decline to a lower limit as the economy develops, and FDI should be encouraged to remove domestic monopolies and foster competion in all markets.
In the book "Does Foreign Direct Investment Promote Development?" edited by Theodore H. Moran, Edward M. Graham, and Magnus Blomström, (ISBN paper 0-88132-381-0 • May 2005 • 440 pp • $28.95), one can get the latest empirical research on the subject. Studies of the linkage between foreign direct investment and development have produced confusingand sometimes contradictory results. Some have shown that foreign direct investment
(FDI) spurs economic growth in the host countries; others show no such effect. Some find spillover benefits to the host economy—that is, benefits not appropriated by investors or in the form of superior wages—while others do not discern these benefits. A new book from the Institute
for International Economics, Does Foreign Direct Investment Promote Development?, seeks to untangle the knotty questions plaguing this field of research and presents new results that show how host countries can maximize the benefits of FDI. For years,…...

..., half of India’s population was below 25 years, 62 % of its population was in the working age group and India, thus accounted for 17.5% of world’s total working age population. From 2010 to 2030, India’s total working population is poised to rise from 749 million to 962 million; accounting for about 28 per cent of total increase in world’s working age population over the period. This provides a huge opportunity for the Japanese firms to capitalize on this. Internalization Advantage Most of the firms studied have either been in India for long with manufacturing capacities set up here or are in the process of doing it. Firms like Hitachi have plants set up in Gujarat and Jammu. Panasonic is going to set up a plant by the next year. Licensing would require the Japanese firms to share their knowhow with the licensee which they are reluctant to. Firms like Panasonic, Hitachi and Sharp entered India through joint ventures. But now after the FDI policy allowing 100% stake, they are acquiring the controlling stakes in the joint ventures and aggressively setting up manufacturing operations. Moreover Internalization also insulates the Japanese firms from exchange rate fluctuations. Also most of these firms have long term plans for India and see it as a strategic location for their revenue stream. So it is only natural for them to give their full attention and resources to the country. Some Government policies which favor internalization (controlling) of foreign firms in India are...

While they still remain below the level of total official development assistance (ODA) flows, they have been larger than bilateral ODA (that is, ODA excluding ODA from multilateral organizations) from 2006 (figure I.2). In the period 1990-2009, in 13 LDCs FDI increased while bilateral ODA decreased [pic] Figure I.1. Private capital flows to LDCs, 2001–2010 (Billions of dollars) [pic] Figure I.2. FDI inflows and ODA flows to LDCs, 1990–2010 (Billions of dollars) [pic] Figure I.3. FDI inflows to the LDCs and their share in world inflows and developing-country inflows, 1986–2010 (Billions of dollars and per cent) FDI inflows to LDCs, at an estimated $24 billion in 2010, account for a tiny portion of both global FDI and FDI inflows to the developing world (at 2 per cent and 5 per cent respectively in 2010) (figure I.3). Despite the relatively modest flows they are a major contributor to capital formation in LDCs because of their higher share in LDCs’ total investment. This contribution of FDI to LDCs’ capital formation has increased in the first decade of the twenty-first century. While FDI flows were equivalent to only 20 per cent of gross fixed capital formation (GFCF) at the start of the decade, they reached 28 per cent in 2008, though they declined in the last two years (2009-2010) (figure I.4).

Fdi Issues

...FDI reforms – Challenge or Issue Dona Cherian C201276364 In the Indian economy, the contribution of retail and wholesale trade alone to the GDP growth is at a whopping 14 %. This figure in itself is indicative of the importance of this sector in the growth of India’s economy. It is double that of the next service sector contribution; construction at a7.3% growth rate. The retail sector is divided into organised (malls, hypermarkets etc.) and un-organised sectors (kiranas, convenience stores, pavement vendors) wherein the latter constitutes almost 98% of all retailing trade in the country. The coming of FDI would bring on a higher percentage of organised sector into the entire retailing industry which is where the question of good or bad arises. The people who talk against the FDI policy have many reasons that they put forward to justify their cause. One of the main reasons here is the fact that the drastic increase in the organised retail market would almost wipe out the domestic unorganised sector and the advantageous situations that it has in our country. As the aforesaid figures show us, this sector accounts for 98% of India’s entire retail industry, which makes this argument quite scary. The kirana stores in India are characterised by great neighbourhood locations and unbeatable access. With ever-increasing traffic congestion, this is a huge customer benefit. Our country lends itself to neighbourhood solutions better than countries that have wider open spaces and...

BACKGROUND INFORMATION Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is an integral part of an open and effective international economic system and a major catalyst to development. Yet, the benefits of FDI do not accrue automatically and evenly across countries, sectors and local communities. National policies and the international investment architecture matter for attracting FDI to a larger number of developing countries and for reaping the full benefits of FDI for development. The challenges primarily address host countries, which need to establish a transparent, broad and effective enabling policy environment for investment and to build the human and institutional capacities to implement them. Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is a potent weapon of developing the Bangladesh economy and can play an important role in achieving the country’s socio-economic objectives including poverty reduction goals. In a capital-poor country like Bangladesh, FDI can emerge as a significant vehicle to build up physical capital, create employment opportunities, develop productive capacity, enhance skills of local labor through transfer of technology and managerial know-how, and help integrate the domestic economy with the global economy.......

How to Develop My Country

...Vietnam, a small country in the south East Asia, is my country. If I could change one important thing in my country, I would change the way our teacher teach us now, and to do that, I will build a standard school for the students in Vietnam. Education is crucial to everyone and every country. The future of the country depends on the youth and the youth needs to have a good schooling. But in Vietnam, there are still many schools which have poor facilities and lack of effective methods of teaching. For example, many schools in Vietnam now force the students to learn by heart a lot and the test after each semester only test the students' abilities to remember the contents of the textbook. They also don't have chances to practice and experiment. I think a good school is a school with modern equipment and it is where the students are taught how to think, how to learn so they can work more sufficient in the future and that is the reason why I want to build a standard school. A school with modern facilities to support the students during the time they are learning at school and a large library with a plenty of books for them to find out anything they want can encourage them to learn more at their best. One of my friends is now studying in Australia. When she was still in Vietnam, she often got bored with the lessons so she never paid enough attention to the lessons. As a result, her score was really bad. But now, since she moved to Australia to study, she has made a great progress......

Trade Is the Only Way a Country Can Develop. to What Extent Do You Agree with This Statement

...Trade is the only way a country can develop. To what extent do you agree with this statement? Trade involves the transfer of the ownership of goods or services from one person or entity to another in exchange for other goods or services or for money. Trade is seen by many as a way to promote economic and development, with the future aim of increasing the Human Development Index (HDI- composite statistic of life expectancy, education, and income, indices used to rank countries into four tiers of human development) and thus moving further along the development continuum. With expert leg-growth has been the main approach to development, trade may not be the only panacea for development. Other approaches to development such as aid and political avenues also have to be explored. However, the main process to development is industrialisation (manufactured goods create more income than raw materials/primary products) with this we see countries moving through the Clark Fisher model; moving from primary through to tertiary sectors. This increased revenue would promote wealth and improving living standards. In turn, this would make way for the 'trickling down' effect, the increased wealth means surplus money would be available for new industry to be established. Furthermore, this surplus of money may be reinvested into vital infrastructure and increasing the indices needed to value the HDI. Exploring and analysing approaches to development will form the basis of my conclusion...

Fdi Risk

...Risk in fdi All business transactions involve some degree of risk. When business transactions across international borders take place they carry additional risks not present in domestic transactions These additional risks are called country risk and include risks arising from differences in the foreign country economic structures, policies, political and legal system, unexpected changes in the exchange rate, changes in tax policies and codes, and other factors. Such risk factors have negative as well as positive impact on real estate business. It is important to understand and then take actions to mitigate the adverse risk factors. Generally speaking, the environment of the company is unlimited. However, a company is interested only in that part of the environment, which can have an influence on its business and to which it has to respond in order to survive. As discussed under Introduction, country risk is a composite concept that relates not only with political risk but also with financial risk. Political risk refers to the quality of institutional environment. That is, political risk is the risk that the returns to investment may suffer as a result of low institutional quality and political instability. There are many reasons to believe that sound institutional quality and low political instability (and hence low political risk) should attract more FDI. A number of these political risk components are also closely associated with the...

... third stage is the concrete operational stage that extends from ages 7 to 11, and it is throughout this limelight that a child can successively operate mentally. Mental operations are internal actions that allow children to think physically. Coincidence marks the end of Piaget’s stages. Emotional development This is the stage when infants start to feel emotions, such as knowing a familiar, caring voice, learning to love and creating an emotional connection to their parent. From around four years old, the child will become confident and self-assured. At the age of five, they can show their emotions properly, and they show a desire to excel in life and they develop shame. At six to seven years old, these are the times where the child will become rebellious. The change of the human body can also have a big impact on our emotions. Emotionally an older adult may become more or less emotional than before (Stern 245). Adolescence Physical Development During both early and late adolescence, infants go through various physical changes along with all the emotional and mental adjustments. Girls typically have a more unconventional rate of bodily expansion than boys do. Both children also go through an increased appetite, exhaustion and amplified sweating during the adolescent years. As late adolescence, the menstruation cycle for girls will advance and become more regular. Boys go through similar changes in that they begin growing more hair on their bodies and an increase in the......

Fdi Insurance

...This article provides information about the role of FDI in Insurance Sector! Even after the liberalisation of the insurance sector, the public sector insurance companies have continued to dominate the insurance market, enjoying over 90 per cent of the market share. FDI is the process whereby residents of one country acquire ownership of assets for the purpose of controlling the production, distribution and other activities of a firm in another country. A major role played by the insurance sector is to mobilize national savings and channelize them into investments in different sectors of the economy. FDI in insurance would increase the penetration of insurance in India; FDI can meet India’s long term capital requirements to fund the building of infrastructures. Insurance sector has the capability of raising long-term capital from the masses, as it is the only avenue where people put in money for as long as 30 years even more. An increase in FDI in insurance would indirectly be a boon for the Indian economy. The insurance sector has also been fast developing with substantial revenue growth in the non-life insurance market. Over the years, FDI inflow in the country is increasing. However, India has tremendous potential for absorbing greater flow of FDI in the coming years. The role of Foreign Direct Investment in the present world is noteworthy. It acts as the lifeblood in the growth of the developing nations. The wave of liberalisation and globalization sweeping across......

Fdi Drawbacks

...Arguments against FDI in Retail in India 1. Predatory Pricing With its incredibly deep pockets Wal-Mart will be able to sustain losses for many years till its immediate competition is wiped out. This is a normal predatory strategy used by large players to drive out small and dispersed competition. This entails job losses by the millions. 2. Labour Displacement Another factor is that it can only expand by destroying the traditional retail sector. Till such time we are in a position to create jobs on a large scale in manufacturing, it would make eminent sense that any policy that results in the elimination of jobs in the unorganised retail sector should be kept on hold. If we assume 40 mn adults in the retail sector, it would translate into around 160 million dependents using a 1:4 dependency ratio. Opening the retailing sector to FDI means dislocating millions from their occupation, and pushing a lot of families under the poverty line. Plus, one must not forget that the western concept of efficiency is maximizing output while minimizing the number of workers involved – which will only increase social tensions in a poor and yet developing country like India, where tens of millions are still seeking gainful employment. This dislocated and unemployed horde has to be accommodated somewhere else. Agriculture already employs nearly 60% of our total workforce, and is in dire need of shedding excess baggage. That leaves us with manufacturing as the only other alternative...
