Definition of fixed asset investment

Fixed asset investment, or FAI, is a measure of capital spending.  It refers to any investment within the measurement period in physical assets, such as real estate infrastructure, machinery, etc. that are held for more than one year.  FAI can be a good indicator for how much investment is occurring in a country or region, but it is not a direct contributor to GDP.
