Inbound Investment Survey - April 2018
Survey findings show that the new tax law has improved U.S. competitiveness.
According to the November 2018 survey, the optimism that international companies expressed last spring has largely faded in light of growing trade uncertainty. Only four percent of CFOs surveyed viewed the U.S. business climate as improving for international companies. As one CFO commented, “There is currently a great deal of uncertainty, which makes it difficult to do long range planning.”
Despite the concerns over the Administration’s trade policies, the vast majority of CFOs indicate that those policies have not yet negatively impacted their investment decisions.
