US FDI has increased since July 2018 from 17% to an August rate of 29%. 2018 numbers are in contrast to 2017, which saw negative growth all of that year. Overall actual FDI decreased in MoM numbers from 19% to 11%. A big takeaway here is the increased in approved FDI projects. Cracking 6,000 for the first time to come in at 6,092.
