Foreign Investments Up 70 Percent to $49bn, UNCTAD Says

January 09, 2008 | www.kommersant.com

Foreign investments in Russia’s economy grew 70 percent to $49 billion in 2007, ITAR-TASS announced with reference to the UNCTAD report covering past year’s results.

The UNCTAD experts particularly emphasized healthy movement in growth of foreign money injected in transition countries, including the states of the former Soviet Union and East Europe. The indicator averaged 41 percent there.

The United States led with $193 billion, but the annual growth slowed down to just 10 percent there, the analysts pointed out blaming the decline on general apprehension of investors caused by today’s condition of the U.S. economy.

In terms of the aggregate investments of foreigners, past year hit the seven-year record. The amount was $1.538 trillion in 2007 vs. $1.4 trillion in 2000. In many respects, the growth resulted from the merger of national companies and creation of transnational corporations, the UNCTAD analysts concluded predicting that 2008 could be less advantageous.
