Foreign Direct Investment
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/investing-tips/foreign-direct-investment Foreign Direct Investment By www.ProfitableInvestingTips.com Follow the money is age old advice for knowing why something is happening. In this case we would like to follow the money that goes into foreign direct investment. Foreign direct investment is done by folks with lots of money and the intention to stay on course and make a profit. If you are looking for offshore investment ideas, take a look at where foreign direct investment goes year after year after year. There have been changes afoot regarding where foreign direct investment is going. A very useful reference in this regard is the just published United Nations study, World Investment Report 2013. We have used 2007 and 2012 as bookend comparison years as 2007 was just before the onset of the worst recession in three quarters of a century and 2012 is the most recent year reported. Of note is that direct foreign investment has fallen in the large majority of nations but there are exceptions that should help guide investors with their fundamental analysis of where to put their money in the years ahead. First take a look at the data and then read about foreign direct investment. Foreign Direct Investment Comparison of 2007 and 2012 In Billions of USD Taken from the United Nations World Investment Report 2013 Nation 2007 2012 European Union 859 323 UK 200 71 France 96 37 Germany 80 67 North America, incl. Mexico363 408 Canada 117 54 USA 216 329 Mexico 31 26 Japan 23 123 China 84 84 China, Hong Kong 62 83 South Korea 9 33 India 25 9 South Africa 6 4 Russian Federation 57 51 Brazil 35 -3 The largest gain in foreign direct investment on our chart is in the USA followed closely by Japan (113 billion to 100 billion). As a percentage increase Japan out performs everyone with an increase of more than 400%. Other significant performers are South Korea with a more than 200% increase in foreign direct investment and Hong Kong with a twenty-five percent increase. It is significant that the BRICS nations which were thought to be ready to move up economically lost as a group. China stayed put at $84 Billion. Russia fell from $57 Billion to $52 Billion and South Africa fell from $6 Billion to $4 Billion. Brazil fell off the charts going from $35 Billion in direct foreign investment to a negative $3 Billion because investors are taking money out of the country! Direct Foreign Investment: What Is It and Why Do It? In general, foreign direct investment includes mergers and acquisitions, the building of new facilities, reinvestment of profits earned overseas and cross border loans within offshore operations. Basically companies invest offshore because they expect to make a profit over the long term. Because of the long timeline needed to research new projects and develop them, this sort of investment is typically well thought out. Reasons to invest offshore aside from expected profits include low taxes, tax holidays of the twenty-five year or longer variety, preferential tariffs, investment loan subsidies, free land or land subsidies, R&D support, proximity to profitable markets and more. Can You Follow the Money and Make a Profit? There are some useful lessons to be learned from reading the results of the World Investment Report 2013. A lot of the hype about Brazil and the rest of the BRICS nations was largely that, just hype. Brazil is attached at the hip to China and when events in China trigger the next big stock market crash Brazil will suffer. Money is going where there is economic, social and political stability, high end technology, democracy instead of dictatorship and nations that are interested in getting foreign investment instead of driving it away. Hong Kong is preferred over China because of the democratic residual from British colonial days. Japan is in an economic resurgence and Korea is largely keeping pace. The USA remains the most economically open economy and thus benefits the most from direct foreign investment during troubled times. When you decide where to put your money look for growing economies and economic sectors, tax advantages to your investment in a given economy and political stability so that the next government does not decide to confiscate your investment. http://youtu.be/pmqXFPWG87s

Is Foreign Direct Investment Good or Bad for the U.S.? International Ownership (2006)
In 1990 and 2012, respectively, only two foreign investments have been blocked by U.S. presidents,[15] though others have been considered and, often, less explicitly opposed: 1990: President George H. W. Bush voided the sale of MAMCO Manufacturing to a Chinese agency, ordering China National Aero-Technology Import & Export Corporation to divest themselves of Seattle-based MAMCO[16] 2000: NTT Communications' acquisition of Verio[citation needed] 2005: The acquisition of IBM's personal computer and laptop unit by Lenovo was approved by President George W. Bush[15] 2005: The acquisition of Sequoia Voting Systems of Oakland, California, by Smartmatic, a Dutch company contracted by Hugo Chávez's government to replace that country's elections machinery[17] 2005: In June 2005 a CNOOC Group (a major Chinese State-owned oil and gas corporation) subsidiary (CNOOC limited, publicly listed on the New York NYSE and Hong Kong stock exchanges) made an $18.5 billion cash offer for American oil company Unocal Corporation, topping an earlier bid by ChevronTexaco. While this offer was not opposed by the CFIUS and the Bush Administration, it was criticized by several Congressmen and, following a vote in the United States House of Representatives, the bid was referred to President George W. Bush, on the grounds that its implications for national security needed to be reviewed. On July 20, 2005 Unocal Corporation announced that it had accepted a buyout offer from ChevronTexaco for $17.1 billion, which was submitted to Unocal stockholders on August 10. On August 2 CNOOC Limited announced that it had withdrawn its bid, citing political tensions in the United States. 2006: State-owned Dubai Ports World's planned acquisition of P&O, the lessee and operator of many terminals, mostly for container ships, in several ports, including in New York-New Jersey and others in the US[citation needed]. This acquisition was initially approved by the CFIUS and then President G.W. Bush, but was eventually opposed by Congress (Dubai Ports World controversy). 2012: Ralls Corporation, owned by the Chinese Sany Group,[18] was ordered by President Barack Obama to divest itself of four small wind farm projects located too close to a U.S. Navy weapons systems training facility in Boardman, Oregon In February 2006, Richard Perle gave more insight into CFIUS when he related to CBS News his experience on the panel during the Reagan administration, "The committee almost never met, and when it deliberated it was usually at a fairly low bureaucratic level." He also added, "I think it's a bit of a joke if we were serious about scrutinizing foreign ownership and foreign control, particularly since 9/11."[22] Others emphasize the crucial role that foreign direct investment plays in the U.S. economy, and the discouraging effect that heightened scrutiny may cause. Foreign investors in the United States, much like U.S. investors elsewhere, bring expertise and infusions of capital into often-struggling sectors of the U.S. economy. In a February 2006 interview with the New York Times, another former Reagan administration official, Clyde V. Prestowitz Jr., noted that the United States "need[s] a net inflow of capital of $3 billion a day to keep the economy afloat.... Yet all of the body language here is 'go away.'" And, as Secretary Powell once remarked, "money, capital, is a coward; it will go nowhere where it is put in fear." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Committee_on_Foreign_Investment_in_the_United_States

~~~ Foreign direct investment in Iran ~~~ Title: What is Foreign direct investment in Iran?, Explain Foreign direct investment in Iran Created on: 2018-10-23 Source Link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foreign_direct_investment_in_Iran ------ Description: Foreign direct investment in Iran has been hindered by unfavorable or complex operating requirements and by international sanctions, although in the early 2000s the Iranian government liberalized investment regulations. Iran ranks 62nd in the World Economic Forum's 2011 analysis of the global competitiveness of 142 countries. In 2010, Iran ranked sixth globally in attracting foreign investments.Foreign investors have concentrated their activity in a few sectors of the economy: the oil and gas industries, vehicle manufacture, copper mining, petrochemicals, foods, and pharmaceuticals. Iran absorbed US.3 billion of foreign investment from 1993 to 2007 and US.6 billion for 485 projects from 1992 to 2009.Opening Iran’s market place to foreign investment could also be a boon to competitive multinational firms operating in a variety of manufacturing and service sectors, worth billion to billion in new investment opportunities over the next decade. ------ To see your favorite topic here, fill out this request form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScU0dLbeWsc01IC0AaO8sgaSgxMFtvBL31c_pjnwEZUiq99Fw/viewform ------ Source: Wikipedia.org articles, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license.

Turkish foreign direct investment is $6.8 billion in 2014
Turkish companies made a total of $6.8 billion in foreign direct investment last year, according to a report released by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) on Monday, That was an increase of 89 percent from the previous year, the report said. UNCTAD said that companies in Turkey have consistently increased the level of outward of foreign direct investment in recent years, apart from a slight decline in 2013. The report showed that the overall share of total global FDI undertaken by companies in developing-economies rose to 36 percent in 2014, while it was just 12 percent in 2007. FDI from emerging economies increased 30 percent in 2014, according to report. Developing Asia has become, for the first time, the world's largest investor in other countries, with $440 billion investment abroad, followed by North America ($390 billion) and Europe ($286 billion). Hong Kong and China were the second and the third largest investors in the world, after the United States. Among the 20 largest investors, nine were either from developing or transition economies, included Hong Kong, China, the Russian Federation, Singapore, South Korea, Malaysia, Chile, Kuwait and Taiwan. Last year, foreign investments from Japan, world's third largest economy, shrank 16.3 percent to $114 billion, a decline second only to that of Africa, where FDI dropped 20.6 percent to $11 billion. UNCTAD said separately that the world's second largest economy, China, was the top destination for foreign direct investment in 2014, edging the U.S. out of that position for the first time since 2003.

Why invest in Bulgaria
Bloomstart Ltd. presents to you the following facts about Bulgaria: A sustainable growth, a stable political and economic environment combines for the overall attractiveness of Bulgaria: EU and NATO membership, high GDP growth, low corporate tax and a stable political situation. (10%) Decreasing interest rate trend: legal and financial sectors in Bulgaria are becoming more established, offering improving mortgage vehicles, a stable purchasing structure: • Current mortgage interest rates of 6-8% provided by local banks (DSK, Piraeus, First Investment Bank, UBB, etc.....) • alternative real estate financing on the rise (leasing scheme) Increased foreign direct and indirect investment in Bulgaria: • FDI stands for 9.7% of the Bulgaria GDP in 2005 (Austria, Greece, Germany) • FDI inflow forecast at 3 billion EUR for 2006 (2.4 billion in 2005) Foreign direct and indirect investment in Bulgaria is determined by: • the full EU and NATO membership • growing economy with currency tied to EURO • the government continuing to stimulate private investment through a tax cut -- corporate tax were reduced to 15% in 2005 and has been lowered to 10 % since the 1st of January • expanding tourist industry: o net revenue from tourism in 2005: 1 billion (+12% compared toBSR_General_Brochure0003_copy.jpg 2004) o tourism stands for 12% of the Bulgarian GDP o 43% tourist increases between 2002 and 2006 o 36% British tourists between 2004 and 2005: 1.2 million British tourists expected to choose Bulgaria as their holiday destination in 2008 (100,000 in 2002 to 400,000 in 2005) o 122% Irish tourists between 2004 and 2005 Stable macroeconomic indicators: • strong GDP growth: 5.3% on average between 2002 and 2006 • inflation for the first 6 month in 2006 stands at 2.9% (6% in 2002) unemployment rate has steadily decreased to 8.6% by Oct 06 (16% in 2003) • improved credit rating: BBB Highly competitive Business environment: • lowest operating costs in eastern Europe: average salary of 200 € in June 2006 (850 € Croatia, 700 € Czech republic, 600 € Hungary, 300 € Romania) • solid legal framework • Excellent technical skills of the workforce • Excellent educational system Growth potential: • fast developing real estate market • liberal foreign investment laws of improving bank mortgage system • stable political and economic environment • excellent return on investment: as in any under-saturated market, the pioneers have taken greater risks and enjoyed greater returns. And, as those markets begin to mature and stabilize, more conservative large-scale investors are entering them, knowing they would be looking at a relative more modest profit but in a more secure environment: o 50% capital return in 2004 o 36% capital gain appreciation in 2005 o 18% average property appreciation for 2006 o 22,6% increase just for June, July and August of 2007 • lack of currency risk (BGN pegged to the EURO under stable currency board) • significant foreign investment in real estate (in 2006, out of 261000 forecasted to be closed, foreign-residents are involved in 25% of the sales) • the prediction that property prices would double in the next five to six years is "realistic". Bulgaria still features among the top property investment destinations but fast profit opportunities are decreasing. Real estate market trends, stronger market for 3 main reasons: BSR_General_Brochure0007_copy.jpgforeigners have bought properties worth a total of 538 mln EUR in 2005: • increasing EU funding and FDI: o Bulgaria received 500 million EUR per year between 2004 and 2006 (around 2% of its GDP) o the EU will invest around 4.5 billion in Bulgaria in its first two years after accession o within the seven-year budget for the 2007-2013 period approved by the leaders of EU countries the funds for Bulgaria stand at EUR 11.113 B o and FDI flowing into the country (improvement of the infrastructure year on year) • increasing average disposable income for Bulgarians (+ 25% in five years) • decreasing interest rates on mortgages (from 14% in 2003 to 7% in 2005)

Drop in foreign direct investment in Korea has produced major job losses
한국 외국인 투자 부진으로 연간 일자리 13만개 손실 A fall in foreign direct investment in Korea is leading to the loss of thousands of jobs every year. Why the drop in investment,... and what cost does it come at? Shin Se-min explains. Korea is losing 130-thousand jobs every year as the result of falling foreign direct investment in the country. In its latest report,… the Korea Economic Research Institute says the cumulative number of jobs lost from dwindling foreign investment stood at 927-thousand since 2001. Leading up to 2013,… that would be an annual average of 71-thousand jobs Korea could have had,… but didn′t manage to secure. Fewer jobs mean lower production, with figures showing that tumbling FDI has cost Korea over one-hundred-22 billion U.S. dollars since 2001. Simply put,… the average loss in production per year between 2001 and 2013 neared10-billion dollars. Inbound foreign capital has been contracting since the early 2000s, on the back of a strict labor market,… that offers less flexibility for companies. The net loss in direct investment also signals that more Korean firms are now doing business outside of the country in search of more lucrative markets for operation. ″For local firms that are looking to get a better deal in price competitiveness, by setting up production lines overseas,… the government should come up with more measures to keep them home.″ Complicated business regulations are another factor that experts say,… hinder many foreign investors from putting their money in Korea,… adding that the government′s reform drive should be able to ensure there′s a better balance between foreign investment flowing into Korea and the amount heading out.

offshore investment timing
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/investing-tips/offshore-investment-timing Offshore Investment Timing By www.ProfitableInvestingTips.com We wrote recently about timing stock investments. The bottom line is that while fundamentals drive stock prices technical analysis of the market can accurately assess when an asset price has hit its top or bottom. This information is good to keep in mind for offshore investment timing. A case in point is Brazil which seemed set to become the superpower of Latin America and is now struggling even as it hosts the soccer world cup and is set to host the next summer Olympics. Fundamental analysis of business in Brazil before the recession looked great but to the technical analyst there were way too many overpriced assets. Using Brazil pre and post-recession as an example here are a few thoughts about offshore investment timing. Where the Money Goes and Why Successful foreign direct investment follows a strict set of guidelines. A successful investment involves continued growth, low or at least reasonable asset price, political and social stability and the ability to take earnings and spend them elsewhere. Obviously there are a lot of dictatorships in the world where investing could be profitable except for the risk of having all of ones assets confiscated by the local strongman. And there are nations where you can make lots of profits but you cannot get your earnings back into dollars to pay dividends back home. And there are countries that show great promise and attract lots of investment and where prices go way too high before the fall. This was the case with Brazil. The following table is borrowed from our Foreign Direct Investment articles from February of 2014. Foreign Direct Investment Comparison of 2007 and 2012 In Billions of USD Taken from the United Nations World Investment Report 2013 Nation 2007 2012 European Union 859 323 UK 200 71 France 96 37 Germany 80 67 North America, incl. Mexico 363 408 Canada 117 54 USA 216 329 Mexico 31 26 Japan 23 123 China 84 84 China, Hong Kong 62 83 South Korea 9 33 India 25 9 South Africa 6 4 Russian Federation 57 51 Brazil 35 -3 Please note the entry for Brazil at the bottom of the table. This simple comparison shows billions of foreign dollars invested in a country in 2007 on the eve of the recession and five years later in 2012. In 2007 Brazil received $84 Billion in foreign direct investment, compared to $216 billion for the USA, $117 Billion for Canada and $31 Billion for Mexico. In 2012 the USA received $329 Billion. Both Canada and Mexico fell to $54 Billion and $26 Billion respectively. But, Brazil saw a withdrawal of $3 Billion in foreign assets in 2012. This flight of capital from Brazil is a lesson in foreign investment timing. The IBOVESPA, the Brazilian stock exchange index was less than 20,000 and rose to 72,500 in May 2008. It subsequently fell to 31,400 by October 2008. Despite a recovery in 2009 the IBOVESPA has settled into the 50,000 range for the last year. This index is a composite of the BM&F Bovespa market. A more apt example for offshore investment timing is the fall from grace of Brazilian Eike Batista and his companies. Batista was said to be the 7th richest man in the world a few years ago and now his oil company, OGX on the Brazilian stock market, has filed for bankruptcy. Its stock sells for eleven cents a share on the over the counter market in the USA. The company went public in 2008 for $4.1 Billion, never coming near producing the ten billion barrels of oil its founder claimed he would bring to the market. When the oil company plummeted so did other companies in the Batista Empire. If one had invested early in this oil company and gotten out with a quick profit one would have looked like a genius. The basic point is that the booms in Brazil and especially the boom in Mr. Batista's companies were exciting and misleading. A bit of fundamental analysis would have told investors to be wary and a bit of technical analysis would have told them to run for the exits! https://youtu.be/foj6jtG2_4E

Russian Capital Flight
http://www.forexconspiracyreport.com/russian-capital-flight/ Russian Capital Flight By www.ForexConspiracyReport.com The Russian ruble lost about half its value against the U.S. dollar starting at the beginning of 2014. The precipitous drop in the price of oil and sanctions placed on Russia by the EU and USA because their annexation of Crimea and support of a secessionist civil war in Eastern Ukraine have further damaged the currency. However, a French economist blames the weakness of the Ruble on income inequality and capital flight. Bloomberg Business reports the story. Count Russian reserves as another casualty of income inequality that Thomas Piketty believes is reshaping the world’s biggest economies. Russia, which is struggling to rebuild holdings depleted during last year’s currency crisis, has missed out on building a bigger stockpile in the past 15 years by failing to create a more transparent financial system to ease inequality and distribute the spoils of a boom in commodities prices, said Piketty, the author of the bestselling “Capital in the 21st Century.” Jailing “a couple of billionaires from time to time” is no way to address the challenge, the French economist said in an interview in Moscow on Thursday. “In the long term, Russia should have much more reserves, given the level of its trade surplus,” he said. “It’s important to realize that Russia is being stolen money from, by capital flight and by the fact that billionaires and millionaires outside Russia and sometimes inside Russia are able to benefit from natural resources of Russia much more than they should.” According to the Global Wealth Report by Credit Suisse, the top ten percent of Russians control eighty-seven percent of household wealth. This is far higher than any other major economic power. The oligarchs are siphoning off the wealth of Russia and using it to buy villas on the Riviera and condos in London while the Ruble suffers. Foreign Direct Investment The Profitable Investing Tips website wrote about foreign direct investment. Money goes where there is the prospect of profit and that requires stability and a sound currency, both of which are currently lacking as Russia faces currency flight. If you are looking for offshore investment ideas, take a look at where foreign direct investment goes year after year after year. There have been changes afoot regarding where foreign direct investment is going. A very useful reference in this regard is the just published United Nations study, World Investment Report 2013. We have used 2007 and 2012 as bookend comparison years as 2007 was just before the onset of the worst recession in three quarters of a century and 2012 is the most recent year reported. Of note is that direct foreign investment has fallen in the large majority of nations but there are exceptions that should help guide investors with their fundamental analysis of where to put their money in the years ahead. First take a look at the data and then read about foreign direct investment. Russia is one of the nations that lost foreign investors between 2007 and 2012. That only got worse when Putin annexed Crimea and sent Russian troops into neighboring Ukraine. But, the basis of Russian capital flight is the large amount of wealth being siphoned off by a small percentage of Russians who then spend and invest outside of Russia where they believe economies and politics are more secure. China Too Rich Chinese are already taking what money they can and buying property or setting up businesses offshore. Investors expect a thirty percent devaluation of the Yuan in the coming months. Add Chinese capital flight to Russian capital flight and it adds investing capital in the West and it damages both China and Russia. “The downside scenario for China seems more intimidating than ever before,” billionaire Dan Loeb wrote on Oct. 30 to investors at Third Point, which manages $18 billion. “The new question is not whether but how severe the slowdown of the world’s foremost growth machine will be.” Russia is taking steps to keep capital in the country. It may be too late for China. https://youtu.be/4F0L0NR6cUY

Surviving a Stock Market Crash
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/surviving-a-stock-market-crash Surviving a Stock Market Crash What is the trick to surviving a stock market crash? One of our readers posed this question after we gave our thoughts recently about the Next Big Stock Market Crash. It is our opinion that there are a lot of hidden economic factors in China that could drag that economy down and take much of Asia and the developing world along for the roller coaster ride. The trick to surviving a stock market crash is to anticipate and prepare. As such we have written about issues such as when to sell stocks and following direct foreign investment as a means of seeing where the smart money is going these days. As the US Federal Reserve reduces its quantitative easing stimulus program, interest rates are going up in the USA and taking the value of the dollar along for the ride. This is one of the factors that are pulling money out of so called developing economies. Our first suggestion for surviving a stock market crash is to avoid being over extended as some of these economies falter. What stocks will be hurt as the global economy weakens, China's real estate bubble bursts, and countries that depend largely on raw material exports to China see their orders dry up? These are not just foreign stocks but companies like Caterpillar, CAT, that depend on global construction projects for their success. And we end with the reminder that more often than not, cash is king. Panama Instead of Brazil If you are going to invest offshore you need to do your own research. Lots of folks rushed in and invested in Brazil when things were hot and now are licking their wounds. As China orders dry up Brazil is hurting. A lot of foreign direct investment just up and walked away. ($35 Billion invested in 2007 and $3 Billion pulled out in 2012) On the other hand the little country of Panama had foreign direct investment of $1.8 Billion in 2007 and $1.6 Billion in 2012. Panama has the Panama Canal that pumps a billion dollars of cash directly into the national treasury each year. It is a major transportation hub and has strong banking and insurance sectors. When the canal expansion finally gets finished it will only mean more riches for this nation. Panama exports a lot of watermelons and bananas to North America and Europe and does not worry about Chinese orders drying up for oil, coal or steel. Picking an economy offshore that will continue to thrive in good and bad times is part of the trick to surviving a stock market crash. Investing and Holding Cash at Home When economies suffer, equities fall in price and real estate goes for a song. Having a cash reserve gets you through the bad times and allows you to buy when prices are at their lowest. To the extent that you stay in stocks, consider utilities as they continue to make money selling electricity even when folks are not going out to the restaurant, taking vacations or buying an iPhone. When the dollar is strong is not the time for investing in gold but it can be a good time for investing in consumer goods companies or breweries as folks always need soap and can usually find money for a beer, or a six pack, with which to celebrate their good fortune or drown their sorrows. http://youtu.be/E0gBAa0ZKv4

Putin Pokes Fun At Macron Over "Huge" French Investments In Russia
A single Finnish company invested the equivalent of almost half of all French investment in Russia, President Vladimir Putin told his counterpart Emmanuel Macron at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF). “Finland’s Fortum invested €6 billion in Russia, while the whole of France invested €15 billion,” Putin said jokingly. Moments earlier, the French President boasted about the figure, proudly stating his country was second among Russia's foreign direct investors. Russian President Vladimir Putin (R) shakes hands with French President Emmanuel Macron during a meeting in St. Petersburg, Russia May 24, 2018. Kirill KudryavtsevFrance signs contracts for €1bn direct investment to Russia According to Putin, the Finnish energy firm was an example that the Russian economy is open to foreign investment, pointing out that the company was given access to sensitive objects in Siberia. The Russian president said France is an old and reliable partner of Russia, as well as Germany. "We very much count on the fact that our French friends, companies will develop in Russia, will receive income and profit.” Putin also noted that Russian-French business ties are diversified since the countries work in many spheres from space to pharmaceuticals. But Russia's leading economic partner is now China, not France or Germany, Putin pointed out. “Trade with Europe was worth $450 billion once, now it has fallen by half. With China, trade is going to reach $100 billion soon,” the president said. Macron, who spoke before Putin at SPIEF, said that France wants to become the largest direct investor in Russia. "The source of motivation is that our French enterprises now employ 170,000 Russian citizens,” he said. The French president added that, in the last 10 years, no French company quit the Russian market despite the troubles in the Russian economy, it is a “strong signal”.

Bridge2Rwanda Scholars Program
Bridge2Rwanda Scholars is an intensive university prep and access program that helps Rwanda’s best students win University scholarships to the U.S. and Europe. Bridge2Rwanda was formed in 2007 to help expand Rwanda’s global network of friends, to encourage foreign direct investment and to create opportunities for study abroad. President Paul Kagame asked B2R to develop a program to “burst the bottlenecks” that prevent Rwanda’s best students – who often lack experience taking English-proficiency and college admissions tests – from winning scholarships to international universities. The first class of Bridge2Rwanda Scholars was launched in 2011.

Doing Business In Latvia: Linking The East And The West
The European Union’s fastest GDP growth rate of over 4 per cent in 2013 and the recent adoption of the euro are not the only factors that make Latvia an attractive foreign direct investment destination. For example, Mexican CEMEX, one of the world's largest building materials suppliers and cement producers, chose Latvia almost a decade ago. "Through an analysis of the region and where the attractive markets were and also the markets where the talent pool of engineers is relevant, we decided that Latvia was a market to expand in. So in 2007, we took a decision to expand our manufacturing investing over €300 million," says Graham Russell, CEO, CEMEX Baltic Region. Today, the company has expanded to the other Baltic countries, Finland, Sweden and Russia. Alise Pīka, Deputy Head of the Investment and Development Agency of Latvia in the UK, confirms that Western companies choose Riga for their headquarters serving the CIS market and Russian companies open their offices in Latvia, thus being close to home and still operating from inside the European Union.

Asset Bubble Investment Risks
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/investing-tips/asset-bubble-investment-risks Asset Bubble Investment Risks By www.ProfitableInvestingTips.com It is getting increasingly difficult to find low priced investments. At the root of this issue is that the largest economies of the world have been printing money and driving down interest rates. The primary reason for this is that roughly seven trillion in assets disappeared with the 2008 market crash. The USA, European nations and Great Britain have been doing this to stimulate their economies. The problem now is there appears to be too much cash chasing too few assets all over the world. Our concern here is multiple asset bubble investment risks. We have previously speculated about the after effects of the collapse of the Chinese real estate bubble. Now we can add American Corn Belt crop land at $10,000 an acre and $240 million apartments in London. These asset bubble investment risks are not only germane to the individual investor but to all investors. What does a little fundamental analysis of this dilemma tell us? An Interconnected World My father was a small town businessman in Middle America. He remembered having lunch at the café across from his office shortly after the 1929 stock market crash. The consensus of the main street crowd as well as the farmers was that people losing all of their money on Wall Street had little to do with the lives of folks in the Corn Belt. It was only a couple of years later when previously employed hobos rode the rails and came to my grandfather’s back door offering to do any sort of work for a bowl of soup and permission to sleep in the barn out back over night. My father burned corn in the stove of his small office because it was cheaper than coal. The world was more interconnected in the 1930s than small town America had imagined and it is hugely more interconnected today. A fall in the high end housing market in London will not just hurt the Arab prince or Russian tycoon who bought the $240 million apartment. It will hurt the banks that provide credit for homes and businesses in the broader world. So, there are numerous asset bubble risks to think about. How does one use investment risk management to still make a buck and avoid being wiped out in the next downturn. Pick the Most Stable and Desirable Economy There may well be asset bubble investment risks everywhere but where will the fallout be less? And where are the odds better that current economic policy will succeed? The answer is, as usual, follow the money. Take a look at a snippet from the 2013 United Nations World Investment Report that we published in our article about Foreign Direct Investment. Foreign Direct Investment Comparison of 2007 and 2012 In Billions of USD Taken from the United Nations World Investment Report 2013 Nation 2007 2012 European Union 859 323 UK 200 71 France 96 37 Germany 80 67 North America, incl.Mexico 363 408 Canada 117 54 USA 216 329 Mexico 31 26 Japan 23 123 China 84 84 China, Hong Kong 62 83 South Korea 9 33 India 25 9 South Africa 6 4 Russian Federation 57 51 Brazil 35 -3 The flow of money changed after the market crash of 2008 and years later a different set of nations are attracting investment. The USA, Japan, South Korea and Hong Kong are top spots for foreign investment. There may be asset bubble investment risks everywhere but the stronger and more stable economies will weather any storm more successfully. As always do your own homework and do not find yourself bidding for an already overpriced asset because you are afraid of missing out. It could well be that you will be able to buy that same asset in a couple of years for half the cost! http://youtu.be/Su7_jKHHoEs
