The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) International Direct Investment database provides detailed statistics on international direct investment to and from the OECD area. Data are broken down by geographical zone and industrial sector for direct investment flows and stocks.
The data are presented in the following tables:
Direct Investment by Country
Provides statistics for OECD countries on international direct investment flows (inflows, outflows) and position (inward, outward) by geographical distribution, i.e. to and from partner countries and regions. Data are provided in national currency.
FDI - by Industrial Sectors
Provides statistics for OECD countries on international direct investment flow (inflows, outflows) and positions (inward, outward) by industrial sector, according to the International Standard Industrial Classification Rev. 3 secondary level classification.
Provides statistics for OECD countries on exchange rates both as yearly averages and end-of-period rates in national currency units per United States dollar (USD). Note: These OECD series relate to exchange rates used at the time of drafting to compute the amounts in US dollars for comparative tables. Data are provided in national currency per USD.
This table provides cross-country comparisons of international direct investment flows (inflows, outflows) and positions (outward, inward). Data are provided in millions of USD.
