The OECD has published new data on the global impact of COVID-19 on FDI
Rome, 30 April 2021
New OECD data and analysis show that global FDI flows plummeted to USD 846 billion in 2020, a 38% decrease compared to 2019. The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated a steady decline and contributed to sinking global FDI flows to their lowest levels since 2005. In 2020, global FDI flows represented only 1% of world GDP, their lowest level since 1999.
