Catalonia, 2018/19 Top Southern European Region for FDI Strategy

Financial Times sees Catalonia as the best Southern European Region in its latest report on the most attractive European locations for future foreign direct investments (FDI), the same ranking as two years ago. Barcelona comes second in the continent as the best southern city.

To develop this classification five criteria in more than 450 regions and cities in Europe have been analysed: economic potential, labour environment, cost effectiveness, infrastructure and business friendliness. Taking into account these indicators, the ranking determines that the five most attractive regions of southern Europe in 2018 and 2019 are Catalonia, Madrid, Lombardy, Istanbul and Lisbon, respectively.

In this document called "fDi European Cities and Region of the future 2018/19", which is produced by fDi Magazine (February/March 2018) from the Financial Times, FDI strategy is also analysed: Catalonia and Barcelona rank first in the categories of large regions and major cities, respectively.
