International Conference on Foreign Direct Investment & Trade-Emerging Economies Perspective

June 20, 2022 | 03:00 PM

Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), driven by multinational enterprises' activities, has been increasingly regarded as one of the defining characteristics of the world economy and an engine of economic growth. Impact of host nations’ institutional quality in attracting #FDI inflow has gained increased interest from emerging and developing countries because of perceived benefits in the injection of capital, technology and knowledge, and the potential generation of economic growth. It is not a matter of dispute that while the benefits of FDI are real, they do not automatically fall into place. Scholars have been deliberating the importance of an enabling institutional environment in reaping the maximum benefits from FDI. Broadly speaking, FDI flows to countries with better quality institutions but poor governance can impede FDI. Indeed, scholarly research on institutions and FDI has delineated several ways by which institutions matter for FDI inflows.

Focusing on this, #MDIGurgaon is organising an virtual  International Conference on Foreign Direct Investment & Institutional Quality on June 20, 2022. The Conference aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on broader linkages between FDI inflows and country-specific institutional quality, which is believed to be a vital determinant of foreign investments, particularly in the emerging nations.

Prospective authors are encouraged to contribute to and help shape the conference through submissions of their research abstracts, papers and e-posters. Also, high-quality research contributions describing original and unpublished results of conceptual, constructive, empirical, experimental, or theoretical work in all areas of Foreign Direct Investment Management are cordially invited for presentation at the conference. The conference solicits contributions of abstracts, papers and e-posters that address themes and topics of the conference, including figures, tables and references of novel research materials.
