Foreign Direct Investment in Latin America and the Caribbean moves away from natural resources

FDI inflows in Latin America and the
Caribbean have been declining since their
peak in 2011 and this trend continued
in 2017. However, we should note that
most of this decline is concentrated in
the primary sector, where investors have
been discouraged by lower commodity
prices. FDI into the primary sector went
down by 53% between 2011-2012, at
the peak of the commodity boom, and
2015-2016 (the latest years with full data
available), but declined by only 5% in
the services sector and grew by 3%
in manufacturing
