In April 2020, more than half of the world population lived in countries where strict restrictions on movement were being imposed, disrupting peopleâ€™s lives, business activity and international mobility. These containment measures resulted in a sharp decline in total consumption and in a shrinking of trade. The global economy lost 4.3%, which is 6 times the scale of the global recession of 2008â€”2009.2 Global foreign direct investment (FDI), which is considered to be a catalyst for economic development and corporate governance improvement, fell by 42% in 20203 relative to 2019. The decline was experienced in the main by developed countries, where these particular investment flows plummeted by 69% (in Europe, the decline amounted to 101%; in the USA, to 49%). In transition economies, FDI declined by 77%. In the developing countries, FDI lost about 12% on average.
