Global Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is continuing to rise, thanks to stronger economies and government efforts to make it easier for companies to invest and do business overseas. Companies are expanding across borders at ever-earlier stages in their development and these smaller, younger firms have different business interests and are influencing the direction of FDI flows. Meanwhile, larger multinational enterprises are constantly appraising their international operations to best maximise returns. Chinese firms are looking to broaden their portfolios internationally and Asia is becoming increasingly attractive to international investors.
However, there are still hurdles to overcome, with investors getting to grips with challenges such as choosing the best location to invest, regulatory differences and overcoming the cultural challenges associated with a global investment.
Building on the inaugural UK fDi event, fDi Forum Asia 2015: Capitalising on a global investment brings together a high-level strategic group of corporate decision-makers and other cross-boarder investment professionals to debate the FDI environment and examine how to successfully navigate the challenges of investing in a new territory.
Expert speakers will explore:
- Global investment trends
- Where the next FDI frontiers are
- What to consider in a cross-border expansion
- Global strategies for growth
- How bureaucracy barriers are being broken
This growing forum provides an excellent opportunity to learn about company expansion strategies from corporate experts.
