Abstract

Countries' use of grants as incentives to attract inward investment are governed by the ceilings which the European Commission sets on the maximum levels of regional aid that may be awarded in different area of EC. The permitted ceilings are higher in the less developed regions of the EC than in the northern European states. The UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Ireland have similar eligibility conditions for awarding grants to inward investors. The applicant has to invest in certain 'designated' areas, in projects which are viable. The planned investment must usually involve national benefits in the form of a minimum level of job creation or investment, technology transfer, local purchasing or international exports.
