Foreign direct investment (FDI), both outbound and inbound, is relevant to an economy because it can contribute to its economic growth, job creation, technology transfer, and integration into cross-border value chains, as well as international economic spaces. Against this backdrop, the report "Analysis of foreign direct investment in the Basque Country and its companies" investigates the state of inbound and outbound FDI in the Basque Country. It does so through aggregated data for the period 2014-2021 and the analysis of a series of cases of Basque companies acquired by foreign entities. It concludes with a series of recommendations
for policymakers on issues affecting inbound FDI.
