Dear Colleagues,


I wish to share with you UNCTAD’s latest assessment of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on global investment in the October edition of our Global Investment Trends Monitor.




·         Developed economies saw the biggest fall, with a decline of 75% compared to 2019. Inflows into Europe were negative, flows to North America fell by 56%.




The next edition of the Global Investment Trends Monitor is scheduled for January 2021.


Please find the latest issue of the Global Investment Trends Monitor and UNCTAD’s Investment Policy Monitor.
