GLOBAL LOCATION STRATEGIES AND INWARD INVESTMENT
IBM's annual survey of countries receiving investment from multinational companies in the areas of manufacturing, R&D and services revealed Europe regained from Asia its top position in 2005. Europe, as a no.1 position for inward investment attracted 39 percent of all investment projects. Asia's share of inward investment peaked at comparatively competitive level of 31 percent. In 2004, for instance, both countries tied up at 35 percent. The survey, involving global location strategy, reported a rebound by established economies due to strong economic growth while some leading emerging markets, including Eastern Europe, cooled after years of extremely strong investment.
