Foreign direct investment is direct investment into one country by a company in production located in another country either by buying a company in the country or by expanding operations of an existing business in the country.   A subsidiary or daughter company is a company that is completely or partly owned and wholly controlled by another company that owns more than half of the subsidiary's stock. A corporation may choose to locate in a special economic zone, which is a geographical region that has economic and other laws that are more free-market-oriented than a country's typical or national laws.
