Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) can provide nations with capital to achieve higher economic growth and improve their competitive position within the global environment. FDI regulation at a state level, while necessary due to the instability that can arise from unregulated flows of large amounts of capital, will not be effective if it ignores the globalised environment. This paper considers this issue in respect to the Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB). It concludes that the FIRB is not an effective regulator as it has failed to adapt to the needs of rational foreign investors in the global environment.
