Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to show that foreign investment continues to play an important role in business activity across the globe. Understanding the main trends and reasons behind this increased activity is necessary in order to make effective business decisions on how to best engage in further global expansion. The positive benefits on employment and enterprise resulting from FDI will also be considered. A contrast will be made between Eastern and Western countries through an analysis of the main determinants of activities in these countries. The importance of country-specific legislation on the decision-making process will also be considered
