Econometric Analysis: a report for UK trade and investment

Econometric Analysis: a report for UK trade and investment
Econometric Analysis of Four Waves of International Procurement and Investment Decisions

Hiba Sameen & Neil Lee
31 January 2013

This report, commissioned by UK Trade and Investment, investigates the drivers of the investment and procurement decisions of multinational firms. It uses a unique data-set of Chinese, US and Indian firms and shows that multinationals are most likely to invest or procure in countries they see as open and accessible. Yet firms from different countries or sectors are attracted by different characteristics, meaning tailored approaches to investment promotion are important.
