BACKGROUND OF THE SEMINAR :
The main message delivered by UNCTAD in its World Investment Report 2009 was that during 2008 the global flows of foreign direct investment (FDI) had been severely affected by the financial
and economic crisis and that these developments had also changed the FDI landscape because of the increasing share that was taken up by the developing countries and emerging markets. The same report
stated that the global crisis had an effect on the components (equity capital, reinvested earnings and intracompany loans) and the modes (greenfield investments and mergers and acquisitions) in which FDI was conducted. Also the global recession had repercussions on the activities of private equity funds and the socalled Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWFs) which had ventured into FDI territory.
The ongoing global crisis has had a profound impact on the Asia and Pacific region, particularly on its exports. As a result, the region’s aggregate growth is expected to fall to 3.3% (according to the Asian Development Bank) this year from the remarkable growth of 9.8% in 2007.
The region must take steps to rebalance growth away from its high dependence on exports to the advanced economies. The current crisis
is truly global in nature and could be referred to as the worst crisis since the Great Depression. It will be an attempt to evaluate the impact of the financial and economic crisis FDI in India since 2008.
The policies with respect to FDI needed to deal with carefully. It is the responsibility of the experts, media, academicians for investigating and explaining the complex stories as objectively as
possible regarding the crises on FDI. We would like to study the
topic by organizing a national seminar.
