whether South-South integration through trade and FDI is superior to North-South one as regards its impact on export upgrading by recipient economies. The aim of this paper is to analyse the differential impact of imports and FDI from the North and from the South on the export performance of African countries over the last decade. bilateral FDI flows on institutional distance between home and host countries and whether such effects are dependent on the direction of the flows that is South-South vs. North-South, as well as South-North and North-North. The empirical result using bilateral FDI flows data among countries during suggests that the institutional.

Shifting wealth is also making the South a bigger player in both foreign direct investment (FDI) and aid. South-South FDI has been rising faster than North-South flows as firms in Brazil, China, India, South Africa and the East Asian tigers have gone multinational. Though still relatively marginal players, Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWF) are new. Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) inflows to Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) are on the rise and are becoming more widespread in the manufacturing sector. At the same time, there is an increasing importance of investors from developing countries.

domestic linkage. Thereby, we also contribute to the fairly scarce literature on South-South FDI which, inspired by the remarkable rise in multinationals from emerging countries (henceforth southern multinationals), looks at the special characteristics and effects of South-South vs. North-South flows.

South-South FDI vs North-South FDI: A Comparative Analysis in the Context of India1 Subhasis Bera and Shikha Gupta 1. Introduction International capital movements, especially cross-border direct investment inflows popularly known as foreign direct investment (FDI), were seen increasing rapidly in the years following the end of World War II.

According to these estimates, South-South FDI flows appear to have grown faster than FDI from high-income countries to developing countries (North-South FDI) in the late s, and have remained relatively more resilient in the post-Asian-crisis period as well.

The trend in South-South FDI suggests that developing countries are more financially. Downloadable. Over the years FDI activities from developing countries have grown very rapidly and most ofthese investments end up in other developing countries. Such FDI flows are formally known asSouth-South FDI.

This paper attempts to compare the characteristics of South-South FDI versusNorth-South FDI in the context of analysis is carried at two levels. South-South FDI vs North-South FDI: A Comparative Analysis in the Context of India.

South-South FDI vs North-South FDI:A Comparative Analysis in the Context of India Article (PDF Available) July with Reads How we measure 'reads'. Such FDI flows are formally known as South-South FDI.

This paper attempts to compare the characteristics of South-South FDI versus North-South FDI in the context of India. The analysis is carried at two levels. First we look at the overall trends of FDI flows (both inward & outward) region wise (North versus South), country wise and sector wise.

We then separate FDI flows into four directions in columns (2), (4), and (6), i.e., South-South, South-North, North-South, and North-North. 12 Overall, independent of estimation method, we do not find any significant productivity growth effect of bilateral FDI flows, either globally or in any of the four directions.

None of the coefficients are. Trends in South–South FDI A. Results from Balance of Payments Data Data for the location and size of most countries’ stocks of FDI have always been scarce, especially for past periods.

The UNCTAD report on South–South FDI (United Nations ) is a starting point for estimates of the size of South–South FDI, particularly South–. Downloadable. This study explores location choices for investors stemming from emerging economies (often referred to as the South), with a particular emphasis on institutions and natural resources.

Relying on a novel dataset of bilateral FDI flows between andwe demonstrate that FDI from the South has a more regional aspect than investment stemming from the North.

We also show that these findings are not sensitive to the direction of FDI flows, which are South-South, South-North, North-South or North-North. In a decomposition exercise, we also fail to find any significant effect of bilateral or aggregate FDI flows on physical capital growth.

Bilateral investment treaties (BIT s) have become increasingly popular as a means of encouraging foreign direct investment (FDI) from developed to developing countries.

We adopt a difference‐in‐difference analysis to deal with the problem of self‐selection when estimating the effects of BIT s on FDI flows from a sample of OECD countries. Asian FDI into both natural resources and manufacturing.

Indeed, such FDI in Africa is becoming an important and promising facet of South-South economic cooperation. Against this background, this book examines the opportunities and constraints for Asian investment in African countries.

The studies of individual countries will be used to try to find some consensus on differences between South–South FDI and North–South FDI. Among the comparisons of the two types of FDI. Foreign direct investment is a vital tool for building infrastructure and raising economic activity in the world’s poorer countries.

This column describes the emergence of FDI between developing and transition economies (the South). It argues that these are different from traditional North-South flows.

Although investors from the South are sometimes deterred by countries that. Of an estima jobs created by FDI in Italy sinceonly about were in the southern regions of Basilicata, Molise and Calabria.

Abstract. Over the years FDI activities from developing countries have grown very rapidly and most ofthese investments end up in other developing countries. Such FDI flows are formally known asSouth-South FDI. This suggests that the effects of South–South FDI flows – that is, FDI flows originating from and going to developing countries – may be different from those of North–South FDI flows, which are FDI flows from industrialized to developing countries.

In the last decade, FDI. The increasing importance of developing countries and South-South relationships is also reflected in foreign direct investment (FDI).

FDI flows to developing economies reached a record high of US$ billion inconstituting 55 percent of world FDI flows, as compared to less than 20 percent in in the importance of U.S.

FDI outflows and a shift toward the United States as a dominant recipient for FDI, a decline in the relative magnitude of North- South flows compared to North-North flows, and a dramatic shift in the nature of FDI away from greenfield and toward merger and acquisition.

We explore the impact of FDI and imports, disaggregated at the sectorial level, on the upgrading of African exports. We distinguish flows from other developing countries (South-South) and developed countries (North-South), and find that they impact differently on the ability of recipients to absorb the positive spillovers.South-South FDI vis-à-vis North-South FDI is arguably less relevant than for researchers to understand the type of domestic firms attracting investment from South and North investors respectively.

The focus of this paper is, however, not Asia but Africa, more specifically Sub-Saharan Africa. 1. Introduction No region in the world remained immune to the re-emergence of China as a global economic power.

Brazil is no exception. In the first decade of this century, China became the main trade partner of Brazil. The two countries are partners at BRICS, considered a “South-South” cooperation forum, but bilateral economic relations are typical of a North-South pattern.
