1.Is Europe likely to be a good area for direct investment during the years ahead?
Answer: No, Europe is not likely to be a good area for direct investment because the money that has been invested in Europe is over high and also recently, Europe economic is going down. In my opinion If the company would like to do business or investment in Europe. It would be much better to looking for another place such as Asia , Africa , South America because the cost of goods sold , cost of production , cost of living , labor cost are not as over high as in Europe. 2.

Therefore, the US there is so much foreign money has being invested in U.S. manufacturing. In conclusion, I would advise conglomerate to acquire a company in the U.S. instead of in Europe base on the above info. 3.
