"A Global Multi-sector Multi-region Foreign Direct Investment Database for GTAP"
by Lakatos, Csilla and Terrie Walmsley


Abstract
A global bilateral multi-region multi-sector foreign direct investment (FDI) stocks and flows database has been contributed to GTAP by Houssein Boumellassa, Christophe Gouel and David Laborde from CEPII (Centre d'Etudes Prospectives et d'Informations Internationales) as a result of a project initiated by DG Trade of the European Commission. Contrary to other data sources on FDI this database is fully consistent, balanced and suitable for use in CGE work. The construction of this database is entirely documented in Boumellassa, Gouel and Laborde (2007).
This document describes the steps used to convert this database into GTAP v7 sectoral and regional aggregation format. Accordingly, the final FDI stocks and flows database is bilateral with 113 regions and 57 sectors and base year 2004.
