1.1STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM AND PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
Investment generally speaking is a function of saving. Without saving there can be no investment. Saving on the other hands is a function of income. This is because excess of income over expenditure lead to saving.
In Nigeria however, the average income level is very low. In view of this, investment level is very low compared to the level necessary to make the economy grow.
This therefore gives rise to a need for foreign investment to fill up the gap. When this is done, the economy can them grow at a reasonable rate.
Unfortunately, the level of foreign investment in the economy is also very low. View of this situation the economy appears to be stagnant. Foreigner has not been motivated to a reasonable level to make them invest in the economy. One of the problems which appear to be scaring foreigners away is the level of corruption in the country.
Purpose of the study
The purpose of the study therefore is to identify factor that has been hindering foreign investment in the economy. These factor if identified and removed will create a conducive atmosphere to attract foreign investment in the economy.
