About the product

This publication sets out and analyses the main foreign direct investment (FDI) trends in the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean in 2004. For the first time since 1999, foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows into Latin America and the Caribbean grew in 2004. These inflows topped US$ 54 billion, far exceeding the US$ 37 billion registered in 2003 and representing a 46% increase. This is welcome news for the region, as it may portend the beginning of a new and sustained investment boom.
