Title - Investment Map
For better foreign investment attraction and targeting
 

Data availability - FDI data, trade flows, tariffs and foreign company


The source of the data on foreign affiliates is The The Global Reference Solution, from Dun and Bradstreet.

To define a foreign owned company, Dun and Bradstreet applies the 50%-threshold. It is important to note that the parent company is what D&B refers to the ultimate parent company (ultimate owner), taking into account investments through a third company.

Investment Map provides information solely on foreign affiliates located in developing countries and economies in transition and that do not belong to the EU. It is also worth mentioning the great deal of variation in the depth of country coverage (see also data limitations). Some countries, like Brazil or China are extremely well covered; while others, e.g. Mongolia or Jordan, are barely analysed.
