Global FDI: SIngapore is no 9.

In today’s papers, Singapore has moved to no 9 spot in global FDI findings — the annual Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) Confidence Index rankings — based on polls of top business executives by global consulting firm AT Kearney. Only 3 ASEAN countries made it to the list: Singapore (#9), Malaysia (#15) and Indonesia (#50). With the birth of the Asean Economic Community just around the corner, foreign investors seem to be turning their attention back to ASEAN area especially Singapore.

With the birth of the Asean Economic Community just around the corner, foreign investors seem to be turning their attention back to Singapore.

After it was nearly knocked out of the top 10 in an influential global comparison that predicts where foreign direct investments are headed, Singapore is back on its feet at 9th position this year.

Its climb-back in the annual Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) Confidence Index rankings, based on polls of top business executives by global consulting firm AT Kearney, came barely a year after total investments flowing into the Asean states exceeded those going into China.
