India was the fourth major host of greenfield foreign direct investment (FDI) projects and eighth major host of cross-border mergers and acquisition (M&A) deals between 2004 and 2015, according to a research paper released recently on the Asian Development Bank (ADB). The United States received the most greenfield FDI projects in the same period, followed by China and the United Kingdom.

India received 8,004 greenfield FDI projects and 4,918 counts of M&A deals during 2004-2015, the paper, titled 'Future of Regional Cooperation in Asia and Pacific', said.

"With 13,308 counts, the US is the largest recipient of greenfield investment accounting for almost 10 per cent of the total counts. Among the developing countries, the PRC, India, the Russian Federation, Brazil, Mexico, Viet Nam, Romania, Thailand, and Malaysia are major recipients of greenfield investment," it said.

"The evolution of these two major economies and powers [India and China] will pose huge challenges to the region, particularly for smaller economies, which are likely to be impacted by potential economic, financial, or political spillovers and likely contagion," it said.

In Asia, economics and geopolitics—particularly the rise of India, the Association of Southeast Asian nations, and even more critically, China—highlight that the nature of global market integration has changed, with significant implications for crisis prevention and management, the paper added.
