The new Library online resource fDi Markets is a comprehensive database monitoring worldwide activity of “greenfield” investments. What are greenfield investments? They’re a type of foreign direct investment (FDI) where businesses start new companies in foreign countries rather than buy into existing companies. Want data on China’s greenfield investments in the United States, or on US investments in China? You can find them in fDi Markets.
Everything on the screen relates to the current search, filtered by categories such as “Source markets,” “Destination markets,” “Industries,” “Companies,” “Company turnover,” “Date-range,” “Investment/Jobs,” and “Project types.”
For instance, if you want to see data on all of China’s greenfield investments in the United States since 2003, select “New search” at the top of the screen.
After you have set the parameters, you can view the results in four fDi modules: “Home – Live Data,” “Project Database,” “Company Database,” or “Trends Analysis” (see figures below). All data in the fDi modules relate to your search for investments made in the United States by companies based in China since 2003. Click on the any of the companies to get a company profile and information on projects.
