Israel 4th most attractive investment target in OECD
Aug. 21, 2014
The Israeli economy is still one of the world's most attractive targets for foreign direct investment (FDI), according to the annual OECD report on the subject. According to the report's figures, Israel is in fourth place in the world as a target for foreign investment in proportion to GDP, with FDI totaling 4% of GDP in 2013, trailing Luxembourg, Ireland, and Chile.
Israel's ratio of FDI to GDP was significantly higher than the OECD aggregate ratio of 1.4%, the euro bloc's aggregate ratio of 1.4%, and the 20 most important countries' aggregate ratio of 1.6%. Furthermore, Israel's ratio of incoming FDI was higher than the aggregate ratio for emerging markets, including the aggregate ratio for the BRICs countries (Brazil, Russia, India, and China), which attracted most of the FDI over the past decade.
