Hong Kong leads Asia in foreign direct investment

Hong Kong is the top Asian destination for foreign direct investment.

Hong Kong is Asia’s top destination for foreign direct investment (FDI), according to the latest United Nations Conference on Trade and Development’s (UNCTAD) World Investment Report 2016

Hong Kong registered FDI inflows of US$175 billion in 2015, an increase of 54% compared with 2014’s inflows of US$114 billion. The UNCTAD report noted that the rise in FDI reflected large equity investments related to a corporate restructuring in Hong Kong.

Worldwide, the city ranked second only to the U.S., which had US$380 billion in FDI inflows in 2015. Mainland China trailed with US$136 billion.
