1.1. The concept of FDI
According to the International Monetary Fund IMF, FDI is defined as "an investment
with long-term relationship, under which an institution in a world economy (direct
investor) obtained from a long-term benefits Enterprises located in a different economy.
The purpose of the direct investment is like to have more influence in the management of
enterprises located in other economies that
United Nations Conference on Trade and Development UNCTAD also made a business
of FDI. Accordingly, FDI inflows include capital provided (either directly or through
related companies) by the foreign direct investment for FDI enterprises, or capital that the
foreign direct investment received from FDI. FDI consists of three components: equity
capital, reinvested earnings and loans within the company.
The international economic definition: foreign direct investment was the purchase of
property in this country or an entity controlled economy of other countries. That is an
amount that investors paid to an entity's foreign economic influence decisions with
economic entities that control or increase in the economic entity did.
Law on Foreign Investment in Vietnam in 1987 introduced the concept: "Foreign direct
investment is that the organization or individual foreign countries into Vietnam or of
capital in foreign currency assets are any Vietnamese government Male approved for
business cooperation on the basis of contracts or joint ventures established enterprises or
enterprises with 100% foreign capital under the provisions of this law "
Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) introduced the
concept: "a direct investment enterprise is an enterprise with legal personality or without
legal status in which direct investor owns less most often 10% shares or voting rights.
The crux of direct investment is intended to exercise the right to control the company. "
However, not all of which were run, using 10% as determined milestones FDI. In fact
there are cases of property ownership rate in the investor's business is less than 10% but
they still are entitled to executive management of enterprises, while the much larger but

From these concepts can be understood on an overview of foreign direct investment as
follows: "Foreign direct investment FDI in one country is an investor in other countries to
the capital in cash or any assets in that country to obtain ownership and management or
control of an economic entity in that country, with the first maximize its interests. "

(machinery, equipment, process technology, real estate, contracts and other valuable
licenses ...), financial intangible property (ownership of little knowledge, know-how and
management experience ...) or financial assets (shares, stocks, bonds, debentures, ...).
