Abstract: Overseas investment from developing Asian countries has gathered considerable attention in recent times. This paper examines the role of host country factors in attracting outward Foreign Direct Investment (OFDI) from India using panel data for fifteen host countries over the period 2000-09. Using a Least Squares Dummy Variable model, the results show that that pull factors like technology, bilateral investment treaties and FDI openness of the host countries are significant determinants of OFDI from India. We also find that Indian OFDI has remained resilient during the economic recession of 2007.
