Analyzing the most recent trends in foreign direct investment (FDI), the World Investment Report 2015 reveals that, among other things, FDI inflows worldwide showed a double-digit percentage drop in 2014. It assesses FDI prospects, and presents the latest developments in national and international investment policies.

The report also argues that the governance of international investment could be reformed to support sustainable development as well. This includes reforming investment agreements, as well as strengthening the coherence between international investment and tax policies.

The report, which provides key investment data and analysis for policymakers is under embargo until Wednesday 24 June 2015 at 5:00 pm GMT.
