The report noted that there had been a strong revival in flows into the emerging economies since mid-2012, even though overall investment dipped slightly last to USD 1.10 trillion last year, from the 2011 level of USD 1.08 trillion.

"...overall inflows in 2012 were slightly lower than in 2011, despite a strong pick-up in momentum in 2012 H2, partly driven by the unfolding dramas in the Euro Area (where stresses peaked in late July)," the report said.

However, the report said capital flows to Latin America and emerging Asian economies are now 30 per cent above the level in 2007, before the global financial turmoil.

IIF, which has more than 450 members, conducted a study among 30 emerging economies including India, China, Indonesia, Thailand, Brazil, South Africa, Poland and Hungary.
