EDC Global Capital Flows Report

(EDC, Ottawa 29 November 2005) – An Export Development Canada (EDC) report indicates that global capital flows returned to developing markets in 2004 and 2005. EDC also suggests that the pace of foreign direct investment (FDI) is likely to fall off in 2006 as the global economy slows and credit risks increase. Falling FDI may increase demand for ECA support in emerging markets for riskier projects.
