What Constitutes Foreign Direct Investment? Comparison of India and China

Bajpai, Nirupam; Dasgupta, Nandita

This paper is concerned with issues relating to the prevailing state of alignment of the definition of foreign direct investment (FDI) in different countries with the international standards as advocated by the International Monetary Fund and Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. In this context, we review the existing accounting gap in FDI statistics between India and China and explore certain dimensions of the discrepancy. Finally, a few observations and policy recommendations evolve from the analysis.
