Cover Story (view full-size image): This paper investigates the impacts of pandemic uncertainty on Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) using the new World Pandemic Uncertainty Index based on a sample of 142 economies and sub-samples (incomes and regions) from 1996 to 2019. Using the two-step system, the Generalised Method of Moments estimation of linear dynamic panel-data model, the results suggest that pandemic uncertainty highly affects international firms’ behaviour, which subsequently leads to a decline in FDI. Furthermore, FDI is more sensitive to pandemic shocks in emerging economies and the Asia-Pacific region than in any other economies or regions. Our findings suggest that measures to support foreign investors, such as trade agreements and economic clusters, should be implemented for economic recovery towards sustainable development.
