Featuring six international case studies from The Republic of Ireland, France, Costa Rica, Singapore the US State of Ohio and the Australian State of Victoria, combined with in-depth analysis, this report identifies a series of common principles at play in attracting inward investment. It reveals a highly competitive inward investment landscape and highlights an investor focus on the technical skills required for rapidly expanding sectors such as tech, advanced manufacturing and life sciences.

It shows that high quality skills and inward investment are now integral to each other.
