In these videos, recorded during videoconferences with Vi members in Russia and Perú, Ralf Krüger and Nicole Moussa, of UNCTAD's Division on Investment and Enterprise, discuss the findings of the 2009 World Investment Report (WIR).
Krüger and Moussa first examine the trends of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) during and following the global financial crisis, analyzing the latest data on FDI inflows, policy changes and prospects to illustrate the effects on developing and transition economies.
The presentations also cover the special topic of the WIR 2009: Agricultural production and transnational corporations (TNCs), and conclude with policy recommendations.
