FDI into South Africa fell in 2014, but country remained biggest African recipient | GDP Global: Investment Promotion Agencies, IPA, Foreign Direct Investment, FDI, Economic Development | Scoop.it
Foreign direct investment (FDI) flows to South Africa fell by over 31% last year to $5.72-billion, from $8.3-billion in 2013, the latest World Investment Report (WIR 2015) shows. The decline in what is known to be a volatile number, drawn from South African Reserve Bank (SARB) data, came amid a 16% fall in global inflows to $1.23-trillion in 2014, from $1.47-trillion in 2013. The South African figure was better than inflows reported between 2010 and 2012, but below the $7.5-billion recorded in 2009.
Christina Knutsson's insight:

FDI should be pouring in - SA opportunities abound but bold adjustments to inefficient policies are needed to make promotion efforts more rewarding.
