The impact of foreign direct investment (FDI) on development is a much-debated topic. Over decades, many international financial institutions, such as the World Bank and the IMF, have increasingly promoted FDI.

Economic growth and benefits of foreign direct investment depend on factors such as the industry and the learning curve. Foreign direct investment (FDI) is, “a controlling ownership in a business enterprise in one country by an entity based in another country.”  There are three strategic types of FDI: Horizontal FDI, Platform FDI, and Vertical FDI. The horizontal FDI is, “when a firms duplicates its home country-based activates at the same value chain in a host country through FDI. Platform FDI occurs when “foreign direct investment from a source country into a destination country for the purpose of exporting to a third country. Vertical FDI “takes place when a firm through FDI moves upstream or downstream in different value chains i.e., when firms perform value-adding activities stage by stage in a vertical fashion in a host country.” It is a common belief that FDI increases local growth (economic development); and the benefits come from transfer for technology and management know-how, introduction of new processes, and employee training. 
Foreign Direct Investment is the direct investment in new facilities or companies to expand a business in a new country.

The risk of emerging markets is greater than in developed, thus yielding a greater return on investment when the endeavor succeeds.

Consequently, investigating factors that pull FDI into country became a crucial topic in the literature.
