Investment trend and Sector analysis:  Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka - November 2006

The impact of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) can be examined by using different parameters such as capital formation, backward linkages, employment, technology transfer, market access and knowledge spillovers. FDI is increasingly becoming a preferred form of capital flows to developing countries in recent years.

The analysis shows that although the impact was found mixed, Bangladesh's performance was on the positive side. As in major emerging economies such as India and China, it appears that even in the case of Pakistan there exists a direct and positive relationship between FDI and Economic Growth. The Sri Lanka economy has undergone fundamental changes with its per capita nominal income rising from US$ 719 in 1995 to US$ 1,197 in 2005.
