현재 우리가 겪고 있는 경제위기를 조속히 벗어나기 위해서는 외국인투자의 유치가 절실하다. 외국인투자는 외국자본을 안정적으로 도입하는 수단일 뿐만 아니라 외국의 모기업이 현지 자회사에 대해 수출입금융 및 원자재 구입을 지원하게 되므로 특히 경제위기를 겪고 있는 투자유치국의 입장에서는 경제를 떠받치는 역할을 하기도 한다. 뿐만 아니라 외국인투자는 외국의 첨단기술·지식 및 선진 경영기법을 들여옴으로써 산업고도화를 이루는 데 기여하고, 국내기업들로 하여금 외국기업과의 경쟁에서 뒤쳐지지 않기 위해 연구개발 노력을 기울이게 하여 국내기업들의 생산성을 높이는 효과를 가져온다. 외국인투자는 또한 상품의 가격을 낮추며 선택의 폭을 넓힘으로써 소비자에게도 이득을 가져온다.

이 책자가 전달하고자 하는 핵심적인 메시지는, 외국인투자가 현재의 경제위기를 빠른 시일 안에 극복하는 데 도움을 줄 뿐 아니라 우리 경제가 지속적으로 성장할 수 있는 기틀을 마련하는 데 매우 중요한 역할을 한다는 것이다. 따라서 앞으로도 보다 많은 외국인투자를 유치하기 위해서는 투자유인제도, 투자자관계관리, 국경간 M&A, 공기업의 해외매각, 경쟁정책 및 무역관련 투자장벽 등의 분야에서 나타나는 문제점들을 제거함으로써 전반적인 투자환경을 개선하려는 노력을 기울여야 한다. 그러나 아무리 좋은 제도를 갖고 있더라도 외국인투자에 대해 국민들이 부정적인 인식을 갖고 있다면 외국투자자들이 기꺼이 투자하려 하지 않을 것이다. 우리나라에서 기업활동을 하고 우리 경제에 도움을 주는 기업이면 국적이 어디든 우리 기업으로 받아 들이고 격려해 주는 동시에 외국상품이라고 해서 무조건 배격하지 않는 열린 마음을 갖는 것이 무엇보다 중요하다.
Foreign Direct Investment: A Key to Overcoming the Crisis
Executive Summary

1. Countries as diverse as the United Kingdom, Chile, and Mexico have successfully utilized foreign direct investment (FDI) to overcome financial crises. FDI contributed to these economic turnarounds by creating jobs and facilitating technology transfers. Thailand and Malaysia are two Asian countries that have been active in promoting FDI by removing restrictions on such investment and selling off financial institutions to foreign investors.

2. A major advantage of FDI is that it induces stable foreign capital without increasing domestic debt. Furthermore FDI facilitates financial and corporate restructuring. Such factors not only quickly contribute to the financial and corporate health of countries, but recent empirical studies show that a higher level of FDI is associated with a lower incidence of currency crisis and IMF rescue loan arrangements.

3. FDI increases consumer welfare by enhancing competition and boosting productivity through transfers of advanced technology and management know-how, benefits not normally associated with portfolio investment. A list of the benefits of trade and investment liberalization appearing in a recent publication of the OECD include greater freedom of choice, an increased degree of specialization and exchange based on comparative advantage, downward pressure on the prices of goods and services, productivity gains, technology and knowledge spillover, and a more efficient allocation of resources

4. Among these benefits, the spillover effect of advanced technologies of foreign invested firms is particularly important for developing countries. In Korea, the foreign subsidiaries Motorola Korea and Du Pont Korea have contributed to the upgrading of the technological capacity of domestic subcontractors. Such transfer has taken place through the operation of technology assistance centers, on-the-job training of quality improvement, and technical and managerial guidance. These subsidiaries also assisted former employees in establishing their own firms by transferring machines and later purchasing their products.

5. Besides these technology spillover effects, FDI promotes competition in domestic markets, thereby raising efficiency, and increases consumer welfare through lower prices. FDI liberalization alone has the ability of transforming entrenched monopolistic domestic markets into strongly competitive centers of activity.

6. Some worry that FDI may tip the current account of a country into deficit due to imports of intermediate goods, upward pressure on local currency, income transfers and the repatriation of profits by foreign multinationals. While some of this may be true, in the long-term, FDI improves current account due to its tendency to foster increases in -locally produced contents of intermediate goods,-exports,-follow-up and new investment that follows initial FDI, and-export competitiveness realized through transfers of advanced technology and management know-how.

7. FDI also creates jobs and, according to a recent OECD study, is complementary to environment protection. The foreign invested firms in the Masan Free Export Zone created over 50,000 jobs in the mid-1970s. Yuhan Kimberly has been campaigning for forest conservation since 1984, the first large-scale corporate environment protection campaign in Korea.

8. In Korea there is a lingering view that the privatization of state-owned enterprises (SOEs) will bring in bids below actual value. However, case studies of other countries demonstrate that the sale of SOEs to foreign investors not only bring resources needed for restructuring but also induce additional foreign investment by raising international credibility. According to a study by the Foreign Investment Advisory Service (FIAS), every dollar of FDI through privatization fosters an additional 0.88 dollars of FDI.

9. The Korean government has been undertaking active promotion of FDI by liberalizing cross-border M&As and foreign land acquisition, announcing liberalization of foreign exchange transactions and enacting the Foreign Investment Promotion Act. Such efforts have made Korean investment laws as liberal as those in advanced economies.

10. Thus, Korea should now focus its deregulatory efforts on improving efficiency of the internal regulatory environment. The transparency of regulations need to be enhanced through making laws more clear, removing any contradictions. Korea needs to eliminate those laws that hinder targeted deregulation while boosting the efficacy of those regulations that promote needed restructuring. In particular, it is urgent to lift regulations which deter foreign investment in small- and medium-size companies.

11. Now that investment incentives have been strengthened, the remaining task is the efficient applications of these incentives. For this purpose, local governments must be supported in the attempts to acquire expertise in inducing investment and be given greater autonomy.

12. When privatizing SOEs, the additional indirect benefits cannot be overlooked. Thus the government should implement privatization programs with firm objectives and avoid putting too much emphasis on the actual sale price of the SOE.

13. The bilateral investment treaties (BITs), such as the treaty currently being negotiated with the United States, can reduce foreign investor skepticism of Korea's true commitment to liberalization. Such treaties also introduce an effective dispute settlement mechanism. Hence, in pursuing the establishment of such treaties, Korea should employ flexibility to promote implementation of BITs.

14. Meanwhile, it is necessary to remove all possible import restrictive measures which act as investment barriers. Customs procedures also need to be streamlined to reduce the delay on customs clearance. In addition, there should be continuous efforts to fight corruption and lower hidden costs in doing business.

15. Finally, the Korean government needs to promote awareness in the general public of the benefits of FDI. Public officials, consumers, and workers need to be shown that FDI is not a 'win-lose' but a 'win-win' proposition. In particular, our young must be educated in a way that fosters an open and rational mind.
