Measures Of Restrictions On Inward Foreign Direct Investment In The Service Sector For Developing Countries

Abstract

This paper quantifies and analyzes measures of restrictions on inward foreign direct investment (FDI) in the service sector for developing countries, using a methodology developed in Golub (2003) in a study of OECD countries. Several different types of restrictions are considered: limitations on foreign ownership, screening or notification procedures, management restrictions, and operational restrictions. These restrictions on FDI are computed for a large number of subsectors and then aggregated into a single measure for the service sector as a whole in each country. The sample includes 50 developing countries in Latin America, Asia, Africa, and Europe.
