Inward FDI in Austria and its policy context, 2010

Bellak, Christian; Mayer, Susanne

Since World War II, inward foreign direct investment (IFDI) has played an important role in Austria, contributing substantially to overall investment. Austria's IFDI stock increased every year except in two. The most recent decline occurred in 2008 as a result of the economic and financial crisis. In fact, valuation adjustments led to a fall of the country's IFDI stock by 4%. Yet, in real terms, as measured by employment, IFDI rose even during 2008, and projections for 2009 suggest renewed growth of the country's IFDI stock. This short Profile highlights a number of stylized facts on IFDI and describes the country's FDI policy environment.
