This year, BDO has set out once again to understand how CFOs from globally aspiring companies view their growth prospects overseas, as well as looked at what is changing and what, in the last year, has made a difference to their plans.
The key findings were:
- Mid-cap CFOs are nearly all (95%) confident that their three year plans to expand internationally will succeed
- China, USA and Germany are the top three countries that are both global investors and attractors of inward investment. For China, opportunity and risk go hand in hand
- Finding local people with the right skills and knowledge is more challenging than finding the money to expand abroad
