Yeboah Evans, Ohene Gyan Christian, Angela Mangie Ama Tay


In spite of improvement in the investment atmosphere done by various institutions and governments responsible for controlling inward and outward FDI in Central and East Africa regions to attract a greater share of the total value of foreign direct investment inflow and outflow on the African continent, there is still instability in the value of FDI inflow and outflow This paper provides detailed information on the total value received by Central and East Africa from investments inflow and the amount each region spends on outward FDI. By considering the values of FDI inflow and outflow in the late 1990s to 2016. It was realized that, there is an inverse relationship between the values of inward and outward FDI, although FDI inflows have increased drastically over the past 26 years. It is recommended that both regions should support and encourage outward FDI.
