Eastern NC Foreign Direct Investment Prospects

Project Summary:

Identify foreign direct investment (FDI) opportunities in the region’s targeted industrial clusters

Key Assumption:

ENC can build FDI advantage by establishing relationships in Emerging Economies


Project tasks
Project Tasks

Task One: NCER Targeted Industry Clusters Characterization

Task Two: Targeted Clusters’ FDI Pattern Assessment

Task Three: Targeted Clusters FDI Prospect Identification

Task Four: Identify Specific Country/Cluster Thought Leaders


Key research issues
Key Research Issues

  • Extent of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in NCER’s targeted cluster

  • Established FDI relationships/patterns

  • Leading emerging foreign companies for target cluster

  • Countries where emerging FDI prospects are concentrated

  • “Thought leaders” guiding future FDI decisions in those countries

Core concepts
Core Concepts

Industry ClustersForeign Direct InvestmentEmerging vs. Developed EconomiesCapital Markets in Economic Development


Industry cluster
Industry Cluster

A cluster is a theoretical network of interdependent buyers and suppliersIndustry clusters consist of industry sectors (NAICS) that exhibit significant input-output linkagesC3E uses a defined set of 43 national industry clusters as a means of studying a regional economy’s strengths


Advanced manufacturing cluster definition
“Advanced Manufacturing” Cluster Definition

Constituent Industry Sectors

  • Metalworking Machinery

  • Special Industry Machinery

  • General Industrial Machinery And Equip

  • Electrical Equipment & Supplies

  • Measuring & Controlling Devices


Using clusters in economic development
Using Clusters in Economic Development

Identify “Targets of Opportunity”

Clusters suggest regional comparative advantage

Denser clusters offer greater value proposition

  • Emerging growth companies

  • Expansion of existing firms

  • Focused recruitment based on defined advantage


Foreign direct investment
Foreign Direct Investment

FDI can take many forms….

  • Physical facility/subsidiary in another country

  • Acquisition of US firm

  • Investment in US firm

  • Joint venture/strategic alliance with US firm

  • Intellectual property license


Fdi motives
FDI Motives

Transplanted home-bases:

  • top management, R&D, and production

    Scanning units:

  • R&D units with limited development capability

    Market-seeking units:

  • access customer concentration

    Resource-seeking units:

  • access specialized inputs


Fdi drivers
FDI Drivers

  • Company maturity/scale

  • Export orientation

  • Geographic relevance

  • Resource advantage

  • Exchange rate

  • Cluster value proposition


Emerging vs developed economies
Emerging vs. Developed Economies

No fixed definitions; often politically motivated

“Economist” magazine:

Argentina Brazil Chile China

Colombia Czech Rep. Egypt Hong Kong

Hungary India Indonesia Israel

Jordan Malaysia Mexico Morocco

Pakistan Peru Philippines Poland

S.Korea Taiwan Thailand Turkey


Advanced manufacturing
Advanced Manufacturing

Where are they now?

  • 1,355 advanced manufacturing firms in EUS

    Where are they from?

  • 178 of these are FDI


Fdi prospect criteria
FDI Prospect Criteria

Where are the next ones?

  • Advanced manufacturing cluster sector

  • Headquarters or sole location

  • Annual revenues > $10 million

  • 12,150 worldwide

  • Emerging vs. Developed economies


Findings
Findings

Advanced Manufacturing is predominantly a developed economy industry cluster

  • majority (6,537) of AM companies are in Developed Economy countries

  • sizable minority (816) of AM companies are in Emerging Economy countries


Findings1
Findings

  But not all Developed Economies have established AM FDI patterns in EUS

  • Germany, England, Japan and Switzerland lead AM FDI in Eastern US

  • Italy, France, Spain, Portugal not yet active in FDI in the cluster


Findings2
Findings

  Minimal AM FDI from Emerging Economies to date

  • 816 prospect companies in 18 countries

  • only 7 AM EUS FDI locations from Emerging Economies

  • only Israel has been source of more than one


Findings3
Findings

Both Emerging and Developed Economies have substantial populations of Advanced Manufacturing FDI prospects without established patterns of Eastern US location preferences

AM FDI strategy should address both certain Developed and Emerging economies


Emerging economies
