Investment Monitor 2022: Post-Pandemic Recovery and Canada-Asia FDI: Is the Rebound Sustainable?

The Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada is delighted to share its 2022 Investment Monitor report, Investment Monitor 2022: Post-Pandemic Recovery and Canada-Asia FDI: Is the Rebound Sustainable? The report provides a timely analysis of the main trends in investment relations between Canada and Asia Pacific economies in 2021 and contextualizes these trends by comparing the current investment landscape with previous years and historical trends. In doing so, the report captures changes in investment relations between Canada and the Asia Pacific in the post-pandemic environment.

Although the report indicates a recovery in foreign direct investment (FDI) flows between Canada and the Asia Pacific, the recovery remains uneven, with some countries and sectors benefiting more than others. The focus on temporal trends and post-pandemic recovery also enables us to track the continuing evolution of investment relations and highlight future economic opportunities for corporations based in Canada and the Asia Pacific.

Our first of three Investment Monitor reports in 2022, this report provides a comprehensive overview and analysis of the shifting landscape, aggregating data from the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada’s legacy data of investment deal announcements combined with data from third-party sources and metasearch engines. For those interested in exploring the data, it is available through our interactive dashboard on the Investment Monitor website. The website provides Canadians with information on FDI flows between Canada and the Asia Pacific economies at the national, provincial, and city levels. The data is updated quarterly and provides a comprehensive picture of FDI transactions. 

APF Canada’s Investment Monitor reports are designed to inform policy-makers, businesses, and the broader public about FDI relations between Canada and the economies of the Asia Pacific. The Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada is grateful for the sponsorship and support it has received from the Government of British Columbia and Export Development Canada for the continuation of our Investment Monitor project.
