Our attractiveness surveys are designed to help businesses make informed investment decisions and governments to improve their respective business environment while lightening barriers that may intercept future growth.
We examine the attractiveness of a region or country as an investment destination by analyzing the reality and perception of greenfield and expansion foreign direct investment (FDI) as well as their impact on local economies.
Viewpoints by executives, government officials and the academic world are also included, enriching perspectives and providing first hand information on the growth potential of the respective country or region.
For over a decade our surveys have been widely recognized by business leaders, the media and major public stakeholders as a key source of insight on FDI.
