There is a famous saying “cometh the hour, cometh the man”, we can twist this famous saying a bit and say “cometh the hour, cometh the countries.” Your question will definitely be, why was this famous saying tweaked and what are we trying to convey by doing do? In the current economic situation where even biggest economic powerhouses are melting down from the pressure of global recession, there are countries in Europe that are economically, very stable. This saying was tweaked for such countries and was meant to show that even in such difficult times they are running their economy smoothly. Powerhouse countries are turning to such countries for investment and to benefit from their stable economy.
One such country is the Netherlands. One hardly hears about Netherlands in the news. Even when they are mentioned, it is not for any of the wrong reasons. It is a wonderful, peace loving country. Apart from being peaceful there is one more unique quality of this wonderful country; it is economically stable. According to a recent survey, around two hundred top senior executives have branded Netherlands as an attractive country for international business, which might explain the 48% increase in the foreign direct investment. It is believed that the reason for such a rapid increase in foreign direct Investment is international orientation of the country and its pragmatic, solution-based attitude for its skilled workforce. One more reason or the increase is the quality and reliability of the transport and communication systems.
Apart from Netherlands there are many other countries that are economically stable and have caught the eye of many top international companies and their investment groups. By investing in such small but economically stable countries, investors feel safe about their business growing substantially. There is a lot that can be learned from these small and economically powerful countries on how to maintain a stable economy during a global recession.
