The 10 countries with the strongest FDI prospects for 2024 are spread across Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Europe. Asia features six countries on the list, with Cambodia expected to carry the strongest investment momentum this year.

With a GDP growth forecasted at 6.1% in 2024, up from 5.6% in 2023, the IMF expects Cambodia to be the fastest-growing economy in Southeast Asia. The country has strengthened its trade relationships with China, South Korea, and the EU. Additionally, Cambodia has benefited from a recovery in tourism since China started lifting its COVID-related travel restrictions earlier in 2023.

Meanwhile, the IMF expects the Philippines, in second place, increase GDP growth from 5.3% to 5.9% in 2024. Both public and private investment have played a key role in reinforcing its growth, bolstered by the opening of the renewable energy sector to foreign investors.
