Dear Members of the World Investment Network,
It is my pleasure to share with you the latest issue of UNCTAD's Global Investment Trends Monitor (GITM).

The key message: global FDI continued to rise in 2011 despite economic uncertainties;  however, prospects remain guarded.   Outward FDI by developed-country multinationals increased, but outward FDI by developing-country multinationals appears to have lost some momentum.

For your information, the next issue of UNCTAD's Investment Policy Monitor will be released in May 2012.
