Outline

Offering incentives to corporate investors has been at the forefront of many debates over the past few months. Based on ICA’s proprietary incentives deal database www.ICAincentives.com, The New York Times recently published a series of articles  adding a new dimension to this discussion. There are many views and opinions whether incentives make sense or not. Some argue that incentives are a waste of taxpayers’ money creating “locational tournaments” and “a race to the bottom”. Others argue that without incentives, states and countries are not able to compete and attract more investment, create jobs and reach their economic development goals. Whatever the perspective one takes the argument should be whether Incentives are efficient and what measures one should take to make them work better!

 

During this webinar we will focus on the most recent incentives debate, taking an international perspective on the role of incentives in attracting (foreign) investment. The corporate view in which particular incentives are sometimes even regarded as irrelevant will be discussed as well as how governments today can revise their incentive policies in order to simultaneously reach multiple goals.

Presenters

The webinar will be hosted and presented by three renowned advisors in the field of corporate investment, location strategy and FDI advisory:

 

Dr. Douglas van den Berghe            Mr. Chris Steele                  Dr. Henry Loewendahl
