The study is completed with collecting primary data which consisted on the personal interviews to 122 foreign businesses having their activity in Albania out of a total of 1347 businesses. Two hypotheses were identified related with the cultural and geographical vicinity between the host country and origin country of foreign investors and their reasons of investing in Albania. The statistical analysis of the questionnaires was made through SPSS17 program, which calculates the frequency of answers, creation of cross tables and verifies the hypotheses through x2test.

Abstract: Based on 36 cities’ datum, We build a model to examine whether a series of tax incentives to promote FDI inflows have a significant effect or not after 2001. The results showed that: After WTO, preferential tax policies which were taken to promote FDI inflows and upgrade industrial structure indeed had a certain effect. From sub-regional perspective, preferential tax policies for central and western regions still attract FDI, while the eastern region is no longer significant.

Abstract: The introduction of Special Economic Zones (SEZs) in India has injected hope for augmented economic growth in recent future. The motive behind establishment of SEZs was mainly to fuel rapid economic growth, provide world class infrastructure and employment, promote exports, increase foreign exchange reserves and attract more Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). The main objective of the paper is to investigate whether the enactment of SEZ policies had any impact on inflow of FDI among Indian states. This is tested using panel data techniques on 16 groups of states over 14 years period from 2001 to 2014. The results indicate that enactment of SEZ policy (as well as operational SEZs) in a state has induced more FDI inflow. Based on the results, it can be concluded that the states, which want to benefit from FDI inflow, they need to enact the policies sooner.

Abstract: Since China performed the policy of reform and opening-up 30 years ago, foreign direct investment (FDI) has exerted important function in the quick development of economy, but the location factors of West China and East China are very different, and their attractions to FDI are not same. According to the location theory of FDI, in this article, taking the city of Chengdu as the example, we utilized the method of co-integration to empirically analyze the economic factors attracting FDI in West China in past 30 years since reform and opening-up. And the analysis results indicate that quicker economic growth, higher opening degree and investment in fixed assets are important economic factors to attract foreign investments for the city of Chengdu.

Foreign Direct Investment has positive impacts on developing economies, however without proper and effective policies in attracting and management of foreign investment, there can be negative impacts as well. This study attempts to provide a picture of foreign investment in Vietnam over the past time. The main research method used in the article is statistics analysis and Input-Output analysis method using data from Vietnam General Statistics Office, along with some contemporary policy discussion. A comprehensive statistical investigation shows that while FDI sector consistently accounts for about 20% of Vietnam GDP since 1995, this sector is becoming dominating in importing and exporting relatively to State and other non-State sectors. Besides, policies exercised by the Government are both showing signs of unfair treatment between FDI and domestic sectors and showing loopholes exploited by FDI firms (such as tax avoidance and price transfer). From the Input-Ouput analysis, we discovered that the sector which needs State investment the most—domestic sector with highest spillover effects to income and lowest to import—is begin neglected in favor of FDI sectors. Consequently, this has created a fragmented domestic economy that is assembly-based and not fully utilising its manufacturing potentials. Some recommendations drawn from the study are: increase effectiveness of policy in attracting and using foreign investments; ensure fairness in treatment between foreign and domestic firms; create incentives to boost domestic manufacturing; priorities foreign capitals which have positive spillover effects and technology transfer.

Abstract: Foreign Direct Investment has been recognized a most powerful and convenient tool of transforming a traditional economy into a modern economy. Every nation world over is in the race of attracting more FDI inflows to accelerate the pace of economic progress and emancipation. India is no exception to this notion.India has been witnessing low growth in savings since independence and hence, keeping more pressure on the need of resources required for rapid rate of growth and development, the need of the hour. Keeping this in mind, since July 24, 1991, India has been trying hard to attract more FDI inflows to meet its development needs on the one hand and on the other hand to accelerate the pace of growth and development. But India has not been attracting FDI inflows commensuration to its requirement of the economy. The present paper analyses the emerging trends and issues in FDI inflows to India with added emphasis on Japanese FDI inflows to India. The paper has two sections. First deals with FDI inflows to India and Second Sections highlight emerging trends in Japanese FDI inflows to India.

Abstract: Foreign direct investments are very important for the implementation of strategic reforms, transfer of advanced technologies and managerial methods, thereby stimulating economic growth in developing countries and in particular, transition economies such as Albania is. During the last years, Albania experienced an increase in foreign investors’ interest in a wide range of sectors, with energy generation, telecommunication, cement production, mining, oil and industrial parks heading the list. However, the major obstacle factors for FDI inflows seem to remain the same: pervasive corruption, weak law enforcement, poor rule of law, lack of developed infrastructure, lack of a reliable energy supply and insufficiently defined property rights. Determining the factors that attract FDI, and furthermore identify the main characteristics of the host country’s economy, are essential to understand the reason of FDI inflows to a country or region. In the empirical perspective, various studies give different results. More specifically, this paper has focused on determining the factors for and against FDI in Albania.
