|APPENDIX TABLE 9: FOREIGN DIRECT INVESTMENT FLOWS TO INDIA:|
|(US$ million) *:till december, 2018|
|Year||Growth Rate %|
The traditional investors in the Indian Economy are Mauritius & Singapore. Both of whom recognized the enormous Potential in the Indian Economy corresponding to the advanced macro variables. Mauritius increased their FDI by 20% YoY in 2015 and 80% YoY in 2016. Singapore increased their FDI into Indian Economy 150% YoY in 2015.
Netherlands is a unique investor as it has investments in all the major emerging economies of the world and although it raises investments with solid macro variables, but it never withdraws from the economy with the pace other investors do when the economies outlook isn’t promising enough. Netherlands still is a major investor in Turkey & China apart from India despite of its problems. It basically places more weight on fundamental and macro parameters than an immediate crisis.
Also, US and Japan have opportunistic investors. US investors more than doubled their investments YoY in 2015 seeing the positive outlook of Indian economy. Similarly, Japan increased its FDI by 120% almost YoY in 2016
Now, Mauritius stepping up scrutiny over investments would cause loss of the largest investor into indian economy.
