LONDON, June 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
With the markets shaken by uncertainty recently, those seeking to promote national and regional development projects have had a tough time in securing the required funds. Yet there have been events that those looking to secure investment finance have been able to capitalise on.
One avenue of relief has been offered by commodities markets. China's continued growth has seen a surge in demand for raw materials. As a result, those areas that have been able to promote their credentials as a producer of raw materials have seen finance streams flooding in.
The depression of currencies too has also offered excellent opportunities to promote various cities, particularly in Western Europe. Assets such as property have become more affordable to external investors, making it easier to promote the value of buying into particular cities.
Alternatively, proving an area has importance as a centre for business, culture or as a transport hub has equally proven a driver for fiscal fluidity into areas. From airports expansion in India to plans art museum in the Middle East, cities have been keen to show their value as an area to invest in.
