The Global Opportunity Index answers a pressing need for information that's vital to a thriving global economy. What policies can governments pursue to attract foreign direct investment (FDI), expand their economies, and accelerate job creation. What do multinational companies, other investors, and development agencies need to know before making large-scale, long-term capital commitments.
The costs and conditions of doing business are central to the FDI equation. Natural resources and hardworking people have great value, of course, as do a sophisticated banking system and healthy industrial base. But countries that invest in their infrastructure, suppress corruption, and maintain sound regulations can claim important advantages.
Each one-unit increase in the Global Opportunity Index is associated with a 46 percent increase in FDI per capita.
