Foreign direct investment: an activity to assess country risk

Rob Thomas

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Foreign direct investment (FDI) is globalization in its most potent form. The main concerns of companies involved in FDI are similar to those of companies investing in their home country. However, the uncertainties of setting up abroad can be much greater since there is less information and often less familiarity with the non-resident country because it will need to assess the potential risks including those relating to country risk. Thomas shows how students can explore location issues in the context of investment projects, using Nigeria as an example.
