MIGA and foreign direct investment evaluating developmental impacts by Gerald T West( )
21 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Section I of this report describes in broad terms Miga's development mandate as required by the Agency's Convention and operational Regulations, and details its progress to enhance its contribution to development. It characterizes Miga's growth over the last ten years in terms of: membership; cumulative foreign direct investment facilitated in developing member coutnries; total number of guarantees issued; and the cumulative amount of guarantees issued. This section also illustrates the increasing regional and sectoral diversification of Miga's portfolio, and presents aggregate statistics about its development effectiveness. Section II provides an overview of the evolution of Miga's evaluation program and describes its project evaluation methodology and process. Section III verifies quantitative aggregated information about projects' dorect economic effects by comparing anticipated development data with actual results retrieved by Miga staff or independent consultants during the evaluation exercise. Subsequently, the same section supplies evidence of the developmental impacts of Miga-supported projects following a multidimensional approach that distinguishes between different types of developmental effects. Section IV presents three in-depth case studies; a fertilizer plant in Bangladesh, a denim facility in Pakistan, and a residential mortgage program in Argentina. These case studies serve as a basis to test the evaluation framework and to identify further information needs. Finally, the Appendix discusses the special case of the developmental impacts of financial sector investments and rationale for the support Miga provides to this type of investment
