The Global Investment Competitiveness Survey aims to capture business perceptions on the role of investment climate factors in guiding foreign direct investment (FDI) decisions. The survey aims to analyze the investment-decision process of FDI firms across all the steps of their investment cycle (e.g., investment plans, entry, expansion, and exit). The survey also measures the importance of investment climate variables in influencing FDI decisions (e.g., investment incentives, promotion, regulations, administrative processes, etc.). We have developed a preliminary draft survey comprises around 30 questions that should take around 20-30 minutes to complete.
The survey firm will be responsible for pilot testing and implementing the survey. In person (face to face) or telephone follow up interviews of selected respondents and write up of a small set of case studies will also be required to complete the assignment.
