Foreign direct investment in Israel doubles

Jul. 15, 2012

According to the UN World Investment Report, investment in Israel totaled $11.37 billion in 2011, 106% more than in 2010.

The UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) World Investment Report 2012 states that global foreign direct investment (FDI) rose 16% from $1.3 trillion in 2010 to $1.5 trillion in 2011. Global FDI was higher in 2011 than the annual average in 2005-07, before the economic crisis.

FDI flows to developed countries were 21% higher in 2011 than in 2010. Despite this increase, developing and transition economies together continued to account for more than half of global FDI (45% and 6%, respectively) in 2011.

UNCTAD predicts foreign direct investment growth will slow in 2012, with flows leveling off at $1.6 trillion, because of a resurgence in economic uncertainty and the possibility of lower growth rates in major emerging markets.

According to UNCTAD, FDI inflow to Israel totaled $11.37 billion in 2011, 106% more than the $5.51 billion in 2010. FDI inflow to Israel accounted for 25% of gross capital formation in 2011, up from 16.9% in 2010.
