Abstract

The globalization index released yearly, especially by A. T Kearney has become a very important measure of globalization for most countries of the world. Methodology of these indices includes economic variables which include Foreign Direct investment and Trade. We take a look at the index to see how Nigeria is faring in its efforts to attract Foreign Direct Investment to the countly and discover that the efforts are not yielding fruits. As it is, the world is becoming more globalized at faster rate than Nigeria is opening up. This discove1y suggest that the count1y would need to open up at a greater pace in order to attract the quantum of Foreign direct investment that would assist in developing the count1y at the required growth rate. Apart from this the obstacles that can prevent this are briefly discussed.
