OECD Foreign Direct Investment Regulatory Restrictiveness Index

Show all indicators of Market openness


Investment regimes that mobilise private investment in communications infrastructure, technologies and knowledge-based capital (e.g. business models, software, data), coupled with open financial markets, attract foreign direct investment (FDI) and underpin digital transformation as a driver of inclusive growth. The OECD Foreign Direct Investment Regulatory Restrictiveness Index (FDI RRI) measures four types of statutory restrictions on FDI: 1) foreign equity restrictions, 2) screening and prior approval requirements, 3) rules for key personnel, and 4) other restrictions on the operation of foreign enterprises. The FDI RRI is a composite index that takes values between 0 and 1, with 1 being the most restrictive.
