Abstract: The global integration of international trade, investment, information technology and cultures enables free trade, free flow of capital, and the tapping of cheaper foreign labor markets. Government policies are designed to open economies domestically and internationally to boost development in poorer countries and raise standards of living for their people. How has the European Union positioned itself in foreign direct investment? What policies and implementation tools have been devised and have been the effects? How do economies interact to collectively reap the benefits of foreign investment? In addition to the European Union's centralized action, I will examine what investments France and the United States pursue in conjunction with the EU.
