Investment climate; transfer of knowledge international comparison, '00-'02


This tables gives an overview of transfers of knowledge in several
countries. Transfer of knowledge refers to immigrants and expatriates
subdivided into highly educated and less educated. The transfer of highly
educated migrants gives an indication of the level of international
exchange of knowledge. An increase in the number of (foreign) highly
educated workers in a country has a positive influence on the investment
climate and increases the attraction on innovative activity.
