Abstract and Keywords

This chapter examines transparency in relation to inward foreign direct investment (FDI), particularly inward investment-focused policies and incentives. It begins by reviewing the literature on transparency and inward investment incentives before discussing some of the merits of transparency based on its effects on the quantity and quality as well as the process by which FDI is attracted. It then considers the distinction between transparency in norms versus transparency in processes and how these differences affect FDI attraction. It also explores multilevel transparency and its impact on inward investment, along with multiparty transparency and its effect on FDI. The chapter concludes by focusing on the relationship between multinational corporations and host countries.

Keywords: foreign direct investment, incentives, inward investment, policies, multilevel transparency, multinational corporations, multiparty transparency, transparency
