The Investing Across Borders 2010 report and online database (www.investingacrossborders.org) offer companies and governments indicators measuring how countries around the world facilitate market access and operations of foreign companies. For each of the 87 countries surveyed, the report identifies sectors with restricted entry for foreign investors, defines roadmaps for companies seeking to create foreign subsidiaries and acquire real estate, assesses the strength of commercial arbitration systems, and presents dozens of other indicators on regulation of foreign direct investment. For potential investors, the indicators measure the transparency and predictability of countries’ legal environments.
