FDI in India Increased by 22%
Jun 27, 2015

Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) inflows to South Asia rose to US $41 billion in 2014, primarily owing to good performance by India, said the UNCTAD's World Investment Report 2015. FDI inflows to India are likely to maintain an upward trend in 2015 as economic recovery gains ground. In terms of the sectoral composition of FDI inflows, manufacturing is likely to gain strength, as policy efforts to revitalise the industrial sector are sustained.

  • FDI inflows in India rose 22 percent to 34 billion dollar in 2014.

  • The increase in the fund flows to India comes at a time when the global FDI fell 16% to US $1.23 trillion in 2014. 

  • Once again, India is in top 10 countries. In 2008, India went out of top 10.

  • India ranked 6th among the most promising investor economies. 

  • It ranked 3rd among top 10 prospective home economies.

  • FDI inflows to South Asia rose to USD 41 billion in 2014, primarily owing to good performance by India.

  • Pakistan increased 31 percent to 1.7 billion dollar mainly by rising Chinese FDI flows into services.

  • In Sri Lanka, FDI flows from China also rose (China has become the largest source of FDI to the country in recent years).

Among the top 10 FDI recipients in the world, half are developing economies—Brazil, China, Hong Kong (China), India and Singapore.
