  • Foreign Direct Investment (FDI)

    ●  Generally, FDI is when a foreign entity acquires ownership or controlling stake in the shares of a company in one country, or establishes businesses there.

    ●  It is different from foreign portfolio investment where the foreign entity merely buys equity shares of a company.

    ●  In FDI, the foreign entity has a say in the day-to-day operations of the company.

    ●  FDI is not just the inflow of money, but also the inflow of technology, knowledge, skills and expertise/know-how.
