Research, New Zealand Institue of Economic | June 2016
topic. For New Zealand how we connect with the world is a major issue since we import most of our technology and have a relatively shallow domestic capital base. Yet many New Zealanders are sensitive about FDI. Polling consistently shows resistance to further FDI, especially into farmland and the housing market. Misperceptions abound and the debate quickly becomes emotional and sometimes irrational. In this paper, we look at the nature and drivers of FDI in New Zealand, the main costs and benefits according to the literature, and use two brief case studies to illustrate these issues.
