In its Five Year Indicative Development Plan 2014-2018, the GSE states it encourages foreign direct investment and has enacted competitive fiscal regulations and packages to ensure a fair return for risk while maximizing the benefits to the host country, but its policies belie those pronouncements. The Foreign Financed Special Investments (FFSI) Proclamation permits foreign investment, but specifically limits FDI in financial services, domestic wholesale trade, domestic retail trade, and commission agencies, as these sectors are seen more promising for domestic investment. Investment opportunities in Eritrea are most promising in the extractive industries, energy and agricultural sectors. The GSE prefers to obtain a controlling interest in any large venture and appears to favor partnering with smaller entities as opposed to larger, multinational firms.
