Public administrations all over the world are interested inattracting more foreign direct investment to their regions. For manygovernments, however, especially those in developing countries, thisnewfound enthusiasm towards promoting investment appears to be at oddswith an historical emphasis on closely controlling foreign investment.This study examines the manner in which ten developing countries manageforeign investment in order to assess the extent to which the functionsof promoting and controlling foreign investment substitute for, orcomplement, each other. The data suggest that most governments indeveloping countries do view promotion and control as functions that donot coexist well. The experiences of a few countries, however,demonstrate that under the right conditions these separate functions canbe carried out even within the same organisation.
