The United States is the largest recipient of foreign direct investment (FDI) in the world because companies recognize the United States as an innovative and stable market, as well as the world’s largest economy. According to UNCTAD’s World Investment Report 2020, FDI inflows in 2019 amounted to USD 246 billion, down from USD 254 billion of 2018 (-2.9%). The decline is mainly due to the fall of cross-border M&A sales for the fourth consecutive year. The US FDI stock in 2019 reached USD 9 465 billion. The United States has once again topped the list of countries that attracted the most FDI in 2019.
