Library online resource fDi Markets—the latest news on global Foreign Direct Investments

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.

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.
