Hira Arain, Liyan Han, Li Zhang
Abstract—This paper investigates the effects of new information systems and technology on the Foreign Direct Investment in developing countries. It uses the classifications of macroeconomic levels in different developmental countries to determine the effects via employment, GDP, literacy rate etc. of a country. Creation of technology and its acceptance are some of the major processes in the development of a country’s economy. Five different developing countries are the main focus of this study i-e: Qatar, India, China, Russia, and Brazil. Data were collected for 1996 – 2016.The results of the study indicate that the factors were greatly influenced as the integration of FDI along with multinationals became popular. The infrastructure and industrial development in the countries boomed. But, lesser people got employment opportunities despite the introduction of new technology. It was found that, in the above mentioned countries, FDI results in improvement in resources such as capital, managerial skills and technology. It improves balance of payment and also provides job opportunities for the locals.
