August 20, 2014 | According to the latest Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) report, the Israeli economy is still one of the world’s most attractive for foreign direct investment (FDI). The report outlines that Israel is fourth place in the world in terms of being a target for foreign investment in proportion to its GDP. Foreign direct investment in Israel totaled four percent of the country’s GDP in 2013, behind Luxembourg, Ireland and Chile. The OECD aggregate of FDI was 1.4 percent, with the 20 most important countries reporting an aggregate ratio of 1.6 percent. Moreover, Israel’s ratio of incoming FDI was higher than the aggregate ratio for emerging markets, above those of the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China), which have attracted the most FDI in the past decade.
