TOP 5 FDI OPPORTUNITIES

Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) accounts for approximately 11% of global GDP and more than 80 million jobs worldwide. There are four critical motivators that drive companies to pursue direct investment in foreign countries:

Natural resource seeking, which speaks for itself. Market-seeking e.g. to gain access to new customers. Efficiency-seeking to reduce production costs by gaining access to new technologies or competitively priced inputs, and finally strategic-asset seeking such as valuable brands, new technologies, or distribution channels.

However there are other factors that influence FDI flows that are to do with perceptions, reputation, security, ease of doing business etc. The 2016 ranking of the best countries to invest in by U.S. News & World Report, the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School and global brand consultants BAV Consulting threw up some unexpected results.

4000 decision makers from around the world were asked to score countries around 8 equally weighted factors: corrupt, dynamic, economically stable, entrepreneurial, favourable tax environment, innovative, skilled labour force and technological expertise

 

THE TOP 5 BEST COUNTRIES TO INVESTMENT IN

NO 5 - IRELAND - Many viewed Ireland's tax environment as one of the best in the world, scoring just behind Luxembourg and Panama. Business starts ups get 3 years tax free and then move to a 12.5% rate, which is practically half the global average.  

NO 4 - INDONESIA - Due to oil and massive reserves of other natural resources Indonesia has one of the biggest economies in the world. The Indonesian government are pursuing a radical agenda of reforms to assist FDI.

NO 3 - VIETNAM - Recently free trade agreements have been signed with the European Union and 11 members of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP).
Most economic indicators show resilience and point towards a good period of growth. 

NO 2 - SINGAPORE - Educated citizens and intellectual property protection law, along with large ex-pat communities make Singapore an attractive launch pad into the broader Asia region.

NO 1 - INDIA - Recently outperforming china as the top recipient of FDI in 2015, the governments campaigns to create favorable investment conditions in 25 key sectors, and the hugely successful Make in India campaign, have both contributed to India taking the number 1 slot.
