An audience of 67 lecturers and students from Vi Russian members, St. Petersburg State University and the North-West Institute of Management, joined UNCTAD for a videoconference presentation of the World Investment Report (WIR) 2016 October 12.
WIR co-author, Astrit Sulstarova, of the Division on Investment and Enterprise, reported that 2015 witnessed a significant increase of 38 percent in FDI inflows, primarily destined to developed economies.
“The increase may mask some tax-inversion deals, and a big portion comes from mergers and acquisitions,” he explained. “After removing these effects, the actual increase was around 15 percent.”
