Summary The unquestioned promotion of foreign direct investment is not necessarily a benefit to host countries as the interests of the country and the investing company do not necessarily coincide. One policy instrument available to countries to address this problem are performance requirements, stipulations that the investing company must meet certain stipulations with respect to their operations. This report reviews four empirical case studies of the use and impact of performance requirements in the countries of Chile, Indonesia, Malaysia, and South Africa, in addition to summarizing the general experience of performance requirements in developed countries.
