LONDON, October 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
The winners of the illustrious Inward Investment Awards 2012 are announced in the new edition of The New Economy. The awards have been presented to companies and development agencies that have shown drive and vision in promoting their countries and regions and demonstrating their attractiveness in terms of business, investment and tourism.
Businesses are increasingly realising that solely being located in the world's old financial centres does not hold the value or prestige that once it did. New centres of power are growing in Latin America and Asia that hold better market opportunities for top companies that look set to draw companies. Equally, countries and cities are proving their location, infrastructure and intrinsic merits can offer benefits to businesses that are unmatched by traditional centres of location.
In judging the Inward Investment Awards, The New Economy has seen how investment has been spent intelligently in developing areas into special hubs of interest. The direction for investment has been diverse, ranging from installing the hi-tech amenities required to transform an area into a technology hub, to promoting the cultural wealth that an area possesses as an area of special tourism interest.
Of equal interest has been the ability of countries and cities to attract foreign investment. The Inward Investment Awards 2012 have merited agencies that have proven adept at attracting FDI interest through promoting the merits of the locale and identifying how potential investment can be used to yield healthy return. The New Economy's panel has been impressed at how adeptly agencies have been able to match the interests of investors with their area's requirements and opportunities.
The winners of the Inward Investment Awards 2012 have been selected from the leading projects and programmes of development from across the globe. The New Economy commends the precision and creativity of agencies and organisations in demonstrating the value and potential of their promotional area and wish them the best of luck on future economic success.
