Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) flow into Bangladesh has gone down by 4.74% in 2014, says the World Investment Report 2014.

According to the report launched globally in 41 locations on 24 June, the FDI inflow into the country amounted to $1.526 bn last year.

The findings on international investment trends show that the FDI inflows decreased by 4.7% compared to the 2013 amount of $1.599 bn.

However, the report found that developing countries increased their global share of FDI inflows to a record level of 54%, and developing Asia attracted more inward FDI than either the EU or the United States.

As investors, developing and transition countries have been steadily increasing their investments abroad and last year they accounted for a record 39% of global FDI outflows - up from just 12% in the early 2000s.

The report outlined a Strategic Framework for Private Investment in the SDGs that addresses a number of challenges facing private investment in developing countries.

It also proposed an Action Plan that presented a range of policy options and a focused set of policy packages that can help shape a big push for private investment in sustainable development.
