About the product

This report examines how foreign direct investment (FDI) can support sustainable post-pandemic recovery, drawing lessons from the impact of past global crises on FDI and the response of multinational enterprises and international investors that are still relevant today. It further identifies priority areas for investment in sustainable recovery, focusing on boosting growth and development and on increasing economic, social and supply chain resilience. Finally, it discusses the potential impact of rescue and recovery packages that are being adopted around the world on global investment trends, and especially on international project finance in infrastructure, renewables and digital development.
