Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the investment climate of the successor states and discusses what is being done and what needs to be done to successfully attract investments to restructure these states' economies. It concentrates on the conditions for attracting foreign investment. Most foreign investment into the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) has indeed been resource-seeking investment. Russia, Kazakhstan, and Azerbaijan are all well endowed with oil and gas and have attracted the most Foreign direct investment (FDI) of all the countries in the CIS. The development of oil production in and around the Caspian Sea is a major source of investment, as are the development of the gas field near Sakhalin Island and the oil development projects in western Siberia. The chapter also focuses on the strategic factors that foreign investors distinguish in their investment decisions and argues that most of the CIS countries do not meet these requirements.

Keywords: Azerbaijan; Caspian Sea; Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS); Foreign direct investment (FDI); Kazakhstan; Russia; Sakhalin Island; western Siberia
