KPMG compalt2016 report vol1 en


Globalization continues to reshape the international economy. For many organizations, global expansion can have a tremendous positive impact on both top and bottom line. For others, expanding or relocating a business may be a matter of survival, as they face increasing pressure from foreign competitors. If your organization is focused on growth, controlling costs, diversifying, and increasing value for shareholders, the impact of international expansion and location costs must be a part of your global strategy.

Business costs represent one of the many important factors considered in virtually all corporate location decisions. KPMG’s 2016 Competitive Alternatives report explores the most significant business cost factors in more than 100 cities and 10 countries around the world. This study measures and provides insight on the impact of 26 key cost components, across 7 business to business service segments and 12 significant manufacturing sectors. I hope this report helps your organization as you identify and compare potential locations for relocating or establishing new operations abroad. If you have any questions about our research or would like to discuss the impact that location cost competitiveness can have on your business, please feel free to contact me or any one of the KPMG professionals listed at the end of our report.
