Cross-border investment is a vital driver of global economic growth and conveys benefits to businesses and home governments that frequently may be overlooked. Domestically, foreign direct investment links local companies to global value chains, underwrites trade and export opportunities, and facilitates the inflow of capital, technology, and skills.
