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 1998. In 1997, US$ 65.2 billion poured into the economies of Latin America and the Caribbean. Approximately 30% of that was concentrated in Brazil, which emerged once again as the principal FDI destination country in the region. According to preliminary estimates for 1998, net FDI inflows will be much the same as in 1997.
