What is the Inward FDI Performance Index?
The Inward FDI Performance Index captures a country's relative success in attracting global FDI. If a country's share of global inward FDI matches its relative share in global GDP, the country's Inward FDI Performance Index is equal to one. A value greater than one indicates a larger share of FDI relative to GDP; a value less than one indicates a smaller share of FDI relative to GDP. A negative value means foreign investors disinvested in that period. The index is calculated using three-year averages to offset annual fluctuations in the data
