Providing economic decision makers with real-time snapshots of major foreign direct investment trends in the MED region. Helping entrepreneurs wishing to gain a foothold in the Mediterranean markets to short list key territories to approach or to get relevant details about investments in a given geographical area. Such are the objectives of ANIMA-MedMaps, the new Atlas of investments and partnerships completed by ANIMA within the Invest in Med programme. A real investment compass, ANIMA-MedMaps allows actors of economic development to locate online:
The investment projects and partnerships detected by the ANIMA-MIPO observatory (Mediterranean Investment and Partnership Observatory). Since 2003, the observatory keeps identifying Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and partnerships in the Mediterranean countries;
Detailed business news project by project (name of the investor, sector targeted, amount, company's web links, etc..). More than 5,000 investment projects and partnerships are currently geolocated by the ANIMA team;
The economic activity zones located on the Southern shore of the Mediterranean (clusters and technology parks, industrial parks, incubators, etc.).
ANIMA-MedMaps provides, through this collection of 15 thematic maps (referring, unless exceptions, to the period from January 2008 to April 2010), decision makers with a snapshot of FDI in the MED region. As for understanding the logic of territorial and sectoral location of businesses, ANIMA-MedMaps helps to highlight the economic forces currently at work in the Mediterranean.
