About this book


The book considers the determinants of the regional distribution of foreign manufacturing investment in the UK. The core theme of the book is that foreign firms coming to the UK seek in their location decision to minimise their costs of production. This minimisation of production costs is constrained by the need to ensure that they are adjacent to their key markets, whether these be in the UK or wider EC.
