Its largest investor is Switzerland followed by the US, the UK and France. A green economy remains high on Spanish priority lists and renewable energy projects accounted for the bulk of investments in 2022.

Reuters says that Britain will lag behind global competitors in 2023 due to the recession, lack of Brexit recovery and inflation. UK’s GDP is forecast to grow slower than all the other G7 nations. 2022 was the worst year for Government debt since 1994 for Britain. The UK attracted 1,589 FDI projects in 2021-22 of which 38% were new investments with the remainder being mergers & acquisitions or expansions of existing projects. The number of projects has basically remained stagnant since 2018 but is a decrease from 2017-18. However, 85,000 new jobs were created out of inward FDI projects in 2021-22 which is more jobs than other years (data since 2017). The most projects went to London (444) with 444 to the rest of England, 119 to Scotland, 43 to Wales and 32 to Ireland. Britain’s largest investor is the United States followed by India and then Germany.
