Direct investment flows as % of GDP

Foreign direct investment (FDI) is the category of international investment made by a resident entity (direct investor) to acquire a lasting interest in an entity operating in an economy other than that of the investor (direct investment enterprise). The lasting interest is deemed to exist if the investor acquires at least 10% of the equity capital of the enterprise. Data are expressed as percentage of GDP to remove the effect of differences in the size of the economies of the reporting countries.
