The paper discusses how growth in the Asia-Pacific region has been explosive, largely due to the amount of foreign direct investment (FDI). The paper looks at theories of the positive and negative consequences of FDI in the growth and economic development of developing countries. The paper explains that the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of a country, especially one that is developing, is important; it helps them to receive more credit, allows them to do more with the capital that they have and ensures that their currency is more valuable. The paper points out that there should be a higher FDI in many of the developing countries and notes that China is receiving much more FDI than the other developing countries.
