How govt enc or disc fdi : Many governments encourage FDI

in their countries as a way to create jobs, expand local
technical knowledge, and increase their overall economic
standards.Ian Bremmer, The End of the Free Market: Who
Wins the War Between States and Corporations (New York:
Portfolio, 2010).
How Governments Discourage or Restrict FDI

Ownership restrictions. Host governments can specify ownership

restrictions if they want to keep the control of local markets or industries
in their citizens hands. Some countries, such as Malaysia, go even
further and encourage that ownership be maintained by a person of
Malay origin, known locally as bumiputra. Although the countrys
Foreign Investment Committee guidelines are being relaxed, most
foreign businesses understand that having a bumiputra partner will
improve their chances of obtaining favorable contracts in Malaysia.

Tax rates and sanctions. A companys home government usually

imposes these restrictions in an effort to persuade companies to invest in
the domestic market rather than a foreign one.

How Governments Encourage FDI

Financial incentives. Host countries offer businesses a combination of

tax incentives and loans to invest. Home-country governments may also

offer a combination of insurance, loans, and tax breaks in an effort to

promote their companies overseas investments. The opening case on
China in Africa illustrated these types of incentives.

Infrastructure. Host governments improve or enhance local

infrastructurein energy, transportation, and communicationsto
encourage specific industries to invest. This also serves to improve the
local conditions for domestic firms.
Administrative processes and regulatory environment. Host-country
governments streamline the process of establishing offices or production

in their countries. By reducing bureaucracy and regulatory

environments, these countries appear more attractive to foreign firms.

Invest in education. Countries seek to improve their workforce through

education and job training. An educated and skilled workforce is an
important investment criterion for many global businesses.

Political, economic, and legal stability. Host-country governments seek

to reassure businesses that the local operating conditions are stable,
transparent (i.e., policies are clearly stated and in the public domain),
and unlikely to change.
