What is the difference between Inward foreign direct investment and outward direct investment?
What does it mean if the inward higher than outward and the opposite?
Ans. The difference is that inward foreign direct investment means a foreign entity either investing or purchasing the goods of a local company whereas outward direct investment means a domestic firm expands its operation to a foreign country.
Inward higher than outward means amount of investment coming from foreign entity is greater than the amount of investment done by domestic firms overseas and vice-versa.
