BDO International Business compass 2018
06 July 2018
BDO’s International Business Compass is an annually updated index measuring the attractiveness for businesses of different international locations. The study is published jointly by BDO Germany and the Hamburg Institute of World Economics.
The object of BDO’s International Business Compass is each year to quantify the attractiveness of international locations for businesses in the form of a single, comprehensive index value combining the overall societal and business development status of different countries and regions. With this study, BDO aims to provide corporate decision makers with a valuable instrument to identify the most appropriate locations worldwide for their operations.
A special point of attention in the 2018 edition of the BDO International Business Compass is energy and resource consumption. The 2018 BDO International Business Compass compares countries and regions with regard to their use of various types of resources, examining the consequences of energy and resource consumption for society.
The BDO International Business Compass (IBC) is an annually updated index measuring the attractiveness for businesses of different international locations, published jointly by BDO Germany and the Hamburg Institute of World Economics, for what is now the seventh time. BDO and the HWWI invite both large businesses and SMEs operating internationally to avail themselves of the free access to research opportunities represented by the IBC to obtain a quick overview of virtually every country in the world.
