Global FDI competition

Throughout the world, many agencies compete to attract a share of the global FDI flows (still.below the 2007 level) as well as trade, new talent and value tourism.  These resources are crucial for any country's prosperity and growth and indeed for Europe's innovation capacity, global competitiveness, and quality of life.

In parallel, companies, investors, entrepreneurs, graduates and tourists seek the ideal location(s) for their overseas business, career and vacation.

¹ That is, does the IPA clearly state its identity and the uniqueness of the country or the location, differentiating it from FDI competitors?  We provide an impartial analysis and food for thought.*

² Example:  An IPA agency appealing to a variety of foreign investors was advised to align better all its Internet platforms with their target.audience;  eg tweeting in English, not only in the IPA's own national language.

³ Following online discussion of our initial findings with a client representative, we deliver a brief report (in English) recommending opportunities for strengthening IPA capacity to attract FDI inflows.
