FDI brings not only capital but also knowledge and technology. Attracting digital FDI can help economies and companies boost digital capabilities, but reflecting the fact that this is a new area, information gaps and coordination challenges exist. To help unlock these opportunities, the World Economic Forum has launched a Digital FDI initiative. The initiative is designed to support public and private actors in their digital investment goals through three steps: a supply step; a demand step; and a step to connect the two and catalyze win-win investment flows for policy-makers and firms. This white paper explains the initiative and provides results of a global survey on the most important policies, regulations, and measures to firms’ decision to invest in the digital economy.
