Thirty-six students from Vi core member, the University of Sarajevo, joined UNCTAD for a videoconference presentation to discuss findings of the latest World Investment Report (WIR) December 9.
WIR co-author Kalman Kalotay, of UNCTAD’s Division on Investment and Enterprise, began with an overview of global foreign direct investment (FDI) trends.
In 2015, global FDI witnessed a 38 percent jump, Kalotay reported. FDI flows totaled USD 1.76 trillion, the highest value since 2007. According to the report, the principal factor behind the global rebound was a surge in cross-border mergers and acquisitions.
