Explaining the Drop in Global FDI
Please join the CSIS Economics Program and the Trustee Chair in Chinese Business and Economics for the launch of the next Global Trade Alert report, which explores the recent trends of declining foreign direct investment (FDI) flows worldwide. The Global Trade Alert provides timely information on state interventions taken since November 2008 that are likely to affect global commerce. This report was sponsored by the Hinrich Foundation.
After introductions by Matthew P. Goodman, CSIS Senior Vice President for Economics and Simon Chair in Political Economy, Simon J. Evenett of the University of St. Gallen and founder of the Global Trade Alert will present the key findings of the report, both its general conclusions as well as its implications for how we think about the contribution of international business to tackling pressing global challenges, including China. Mary E. Lovely of the Peterson Institute for International Economics will then provide initial reactions. Finally, Trustee Chair Scott Kennedy will offer his own take and moderate the discussion with the audience.
This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
