Dear Adam, thank you for your interest and question. As noted, we need to consider the dataset limitation. Afghanistan is a good example where data on total FDI is very limited. As for Iraq, the rate of return on global FDI into Iraq, when available, starts very strong at around 25% in 2007 but deteriorates rapidly reaching around 1.8% in just two years. It stays at this level for the remainder of the time horizon considered in the blog. This weak performance makes Iraq’s FDI influence on the overall results relatively small (around 0.4% only).
