WAVTEQ presents a brand new model for FDI attraction in pioneering new study

How to Identify Target Sectors for Inward Investment image

WAVTEQ's latest Special Report publishes for the first time research into how Economic Development Organizations (EDOs) and Investment Promotion Agencies (IPAs) can develop a sector strategy to attract inward investment.

Featuring expert analysis by WAVTEQ CEO Dr Henry Loewendahl and Glenn Barklie, Chief Economist, fDi Intelligence, Financial Times, the study presents a new model of Revealed Comparative Advantage in Foreign Direct Investment (RCA-FDI) for the world’s leading FDI locations.

Over the last 2 years, WAVTEQ has successfully applied the model of RCA-FDI to many of our economic development clients in both developed and developing countries to inform the identification of target sectors for FDI.

We hope that by providing open access to the model that it can be used directly by other economic development organizations and related institutions.
