Policy principles for attracting international investment (Attractiveness for Innovation: Location Factors for International Investment)

Governments seek a coherent and efficient strategy based on the right mix of policies reflecting the simultaneous importance of several location factors and in direct relation to the characteristics of the host country.

Careful attention has to be paid to direct incentive packages which may give rise to increasing policy competition between countries.
