The Importance of Business & Economic Incentives in Attracting Foreign Direct Investment - JLL
Do incentives really matter in the attraction of foreign direct investment? Some argue that the cost to the government to provide incentives to the private sector does not result in equally tangible results for citizens, while others argue that the job creation resulting from foreign direct investment merits pro-active government involvement in attracting and – in some circumstances – incentivizing such investments.

The biopharmaceutical facility of the future - McKinsey & Company
The biopharma facility of the future will look very different from the facilities of today, as six major trends are affecting the industry profoundly: an increasing need to rightsize capacity, greater pressure on margins, higher quality standards, a desire for proximity to the end markets or to supply sources, the demand for smaller batch sizes, and the need for greater flexibility.

This article looks at the six trends and the ways in which these technologies may address each one.
