FDI trends - Europe still attractive
Europe is the world's second most attractive destination for doing business, right behind China. Of all European countries, Poland reported the largest FDI growth in 2012. Serbia ranks 11th in the number of foreign direct investments attracted and 6th in the number of new jobs these investments secured. However, foreign investors are of the opinion that the appeal of local market is still worse than it really is, Ernst&Young's 2013 survey on the attractiveness of the European market shows.
According to the Ernst&Young European Attractiveness Survey, Eurozone problems did not endanger the FDI inflow in the European market in 2012. This survey, which has been carried out for as many as 11 years, combines an analysis of international investments in Europe in the previous year and a poll on investment destinations for the next decade conducted among over 800 executive directors worldwide.
According to this survey, despite the recession, the number of FDI projects in 2012 dropped only 2.8 percent from 2011 (from 3,906 in 2011 to 3,797 in 2012). On the other hand, the investment level remained higher than in the pre-crisis period with the number of new jobs increased 8 percent from 2011 to 170,434. Despite the competiveness of emerging markets, Europe still remains the world’s most attractive FDI destination, although its share in global FDI declined from 28.6 percent in 2011 to 22.4 percent in 2012.
Marc Lhermitte, a leading consultant for investment destinations at Ernst&Young and the author of this report, says that the crisis has forced foreign investors to actively seek scarce opportunities and restructure their production in Europe.
- As a result, we witness the return of investments to key destinations such as Great Britain, Germany and Ireland, but also Poland and Russia. Foreign investors seem optimistic that the continent will weather these hard times and emerge stronger - Lhermitte points out.
Great Britain still in the lead
The UK and Germany remain Europe’s top destinations for foreign investors, with 697 and 624 FDI projects (up 3 and 5 percent from 2011) respectively. Among the Western European countries that attracted significantly more projects in 2012 than in the previous years are Spain (273), Ireland (106), Belgium (153) and Finland (62). These investments primarily resulted from a decrease in the cost of manpower, which has contributed to the improvement of competitiveness.
Another group of Western European countries, including France (471), the Netherlands (161), Switzerland (61) and Italy (60), has attracted relatively fewer projects and jobs. The reasons for this range from a stagnated growth in France and Italy to high operating costs in the Netherlands and Switzerland.
Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) regained traction as an FDI destination in 2012 after two disappointing years. Though the number of investment decisions slipped 4.8% on the year, the region secured a remarkable 26.1% more jobs. That meant that CEE overtook Western Europe to become the leading recipient of FDI jobs in Europe.
Poland was the continent’s strong performer in 2012, attracting 22.3% more projects than in 2011. Within the CEE region, Poland (148) outpaced Russia (128) to become the leading destination for FDI projects last year. Serbia too ranks high with 78 FDI projects in 2012. On the other hand, investments in Turkey (95) and Czech Republic (64) were on a slight decline.
Perceptions different from reality
Once again, Germany is perceived to be the most attractive country in Western Europe for FDI, responses to the survey have shown. Germany is seen as the world’s most competitive automotive hub for innovation and product quality. Its economy is among the most resilient in Europe, benefiting from its strength as an exporter. In Western Europe, France is rated second, a whisker ahead of the UK.
In CEE, the respondents saw Poland as by far the most attractive country. For other CEE countries, including the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania and Ukraine, investor perception roughly matched the reality of FDI inflows.
Meanwhile, Turkey and Serbia show a different kind of perception gap. Only 2% of the investors picked Turkey as the most attractive FDI destination in CEE, and Serbia scored only 1%. Yet, in reality, Turkey scooped up 13% of the CEE FDI projects in 2012 and Serbia another 11%. This glaring mismatch suggests these countries face perception problems among foreign investors.
Cene nekretnina u evrozoni na istorijskom minimumu od 2006.
Cene nekretnina u zemljama evrozone su na istorijskom minimumu od 2006, saopštila je Evropska centralna banka.
Indeks kojim se meri vrednost nekretnina pao je sa 97,7 poena koliko je iznosio krajem 2012. na 96,46 poena, dok je maksimalan iznos od 102,4 poena za evro zonu bio 2008, preneo je Reuters.
Ovakav pad cena nekretnina u Evropi posledica je sumorne ekonomske situacije u većini zemalja evrozone.
Međutim, u Nemačkoj, indeks cena nekretnina dostigao je krajem marta 2013. rekordnih 113,3 poena dok je krajem 2010. on iznosio 100 poena. U Austriji je slična situacija.
S druge strane, u zemljama zahvaćenim finasijskom krizom cene su vrtoglavo pale. U Irskoj nekretnine su pojeftinile za 50 % a analitičari očekuju stabilizaciju tržista.
U Španiji cene nekretnina su pale za 35 %, u Grčkoj 30, u Portugaliji za 10 %.Kriza na tržištu nekretnina koja se smirila krajem 2011, u trećem tromesečiju 2012. ponovo je vidno pogoršana.
U Francuskoj su nekretnine krajem 2012. počele blago da padaju posle kontinuiranog rasta još od kraja 2008.
Global Consumer Confidence Measures at 94 in Q2 2013
Global consumer confidence indexed at 94 in Q2 2013, a one-point increase from Q1 2013 and an increase of three points from Q2 2012, according to consumer confidence findings from Nielsen, a leading global provider of information and insights into what consumers watch and buy.
“While confidence in Europe remained in a holding pattern as financial conditions stabilized, perceptions about jobs, personal finances and spending intentions increased in the world’s three largest economies—U.S., China and Japan—which is having a beneficial effect around the world,” said Dr. Venkatesh Bala, chief economist at The Cambridge Group, a part of Nielsen. “However, concerns remain that macroeconomic events, such as too sharp a rise in interest rates, can impair the consumer recovery, including lowering the demand for home purchases and spending on big-ticket items.”
The Nielsen Global Survey of Consumer Confidence and Spending Intentions, established in 2005, measures consumer confidence, major concerns, and spending intentions among more than 29,000 respondents with Internet access* in 58 countries. Consumer confidence levels above and below a baseline of 100 indicate degrees of optimism and pessimism. In the latest round of the survey, conducted between May 13 and May 31, 2013, consumer confidence rose in 45 percent of global markets measured by Nielsen, compared to 60 percent in the previous quarter.
Improved Recessionary Mindset
While more than half (55%) of global respondents believed they were in a recession in the second quarter, it was the lowest level reported in two years (since Q1 2011). North Americans reported the biggest quarterly recessionary mindset decline of six percentage points to 69 percent, the lowest level since Q3 2007 or before the Great Recession.
“The improved recessionary sentiment among North Americans was driven by positive macro-economic developments in the U.S.,” said Dr. Bala. Seventy-two percent of U.S. respondents said they were in a recession—a five percentage point improvement from Q1 and a 15-percentage point change from a five-year average (2008–2012), when 87 percent of Americans said they felt they were in a recession. Concern about the U.S. economy also reported a marked decline of eight percentage points among American respondents in the second quarter, dropping to 19 percent.
“There is increasing evidence that the U.S. economy is improving,” said James Russo, senior vice president, Global Consumer Insights, Nielsen. “While the unemployment rate is trending steadily downward to the current 7.6 percent, the biggest drivers of change include the record gains in equity markets and the housing rebound, which are clearly impacting household wealth and spending potential.”
Nielsen information showed second-quarter recessionary sentiment declines in the Middle East/Africa, which dropped four percentage points to 73 percent; in Europe, which fell two points to 74 percent; and in Asia-Pacific, which declined one percentage point to 40 percent. In Latin America, 56 percent of respondents said they believed they were in a recession, an increase of six percentage points since Q1 2013.
More Spare Cash, More Spending
On average, discretionary spending intentions for new clothes, holidays/vacations, out-of-home entertainment, and new technology products increased around the world in the second quarter. Forty-seven percent of global respondents saved their spare cash, 19 percent invested and 11 percent saved for retirement. Globally, 14 percent said they had no spare cash, a decrease from 15 percent reported in Q1 2013 and Q2 2012.
According to Nielsen’s survey, respondents in Asia-Pacific reported the most significant quarterly spending increase (up four percentage points) on holidays/vacations (43%), new clothes (39%), out-of-home entertainment (38%) and new technology products (34%). Respondents in Asia-Pacific also saved the most, compared to respondents in other regions, with 61 percent putting money into savings accounts and one-third (32%) investing in shares of stocks and mutual funds.
In the Middle East/Africa region, discretionary spending intentions for out-of-home entertainment (21%) and holidays/vacations (18%) increased in the second quarter four and five percentage points, respectively. Marginal spending increases (up one percentage point) for clothing, technology, decorating and vacations were reported in Latin America compared to the previous quarter. Saving and spending intentions among European respondents remained flat in the second quarter.
Consumer confidence increases were reported in Asia-Pacific (up two points to 105), North America (up two points to 96) and Middle East/Africa (up six points to 91), compared to the previous quarter. Europe’s consumer confidence index remained flat at 71 for three consecutive quarters and Latin America’s confidence declined one index point to 93 in Q2.
In key economies, consumer confidence increased three points in the United States (96), increased two points in China (110), increased five points in Japan (78) and remained flat in Germany (90). Indonesia reported the highest index at 124, a two-point increase over Q1. Portugal reported the lowest index at 33, flat with Q1. Nine of the 58 countries in the survey reported a confidence index above the baseline level of 100.
Consumer confidence declined in 14 of 29 European markets, and the region included nine of the bottom 10 consumer confidence index scores, including Hungary, Italy, France, Greece and Spain. Confidence increased in thirteen European markets, including the United Kingdom, up four index points to 79.
Overall confidence in Asia-Pacific remained high, with seven markets reporting indexes above the 100 baseline. In addition to China’s increase, Indonesia (124) and the Philippines (121) reported increases in the second quarter of two and three points, respectively. India (118), Thailand (114), Hong Kong (107), and Malaysia (103) declined two, one, one, and four index point(s), respectively.
Consumer confidence in Latin America decreased for the second consecutive quarter, declining one index point from Q1 2013 to a score of 93. Brazil led the region with the highest index of 110, which decreased two points in the second quarter. Peru (99) and Colombia (87) reported increases while Venezuela (68) reported declines for three consecutive quarters, and Chile (94), Argentina (68), and Mexico (84) each declined for the second straight quarter.
Consumer confidence increased in four of six Middle East/Africa markets, as Pakistan (98) reported the biggest three-month increase of 11 index points, followed by a rise of four points in Saudi Arabia (100), three points in Egypt (77) and South Africa (81). Confidence declines were reported in United Arab Emirates (107) and Israel (83), which declined one and eight points, respectively.
In North America, while the U.S. saw an increase in consumer confidence, Canada declined four points to an index of 98.
*While an online survey methodology allows for tremendous scale and global reach, it provides a perspective on the habits of existing Internet users, not total populations. In developing markets where online penetration has not reached majority potential, audiences may be younger and more affluent than the general population of that country. Additionally, survey responses are based on claimed behavior, rather than actual metered data.
