Comparative Locational Advantage Analysis

 Comparative Locational Advantage Analysis (CLAA) is a proprietory intelligence system to identify the most suitable locations for each client’s specific business needs using a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods.

CLAA takes the following factors into account:

  • Market Access Opportunities: market and competitor analysis – a realistic assessments of market size, taking demographic, cultural and economic factors into account, all of which combine to provide you with a clear picture of the opportunity-costs for different locations in the market you are planning to enter, specifically geared to your business
  • Soft Infrastructure & Human Resources: employment laws and availability and cost of qualified labour
  • Hard Infrastructure & Transport: to enable you to take advantage of industrial clustering, and avoid potential pitfalls for production, or disruptions to supply and distribution logistics
  • Political & Security Risks: balanced independent and impartial assessments of politcal and security risks
  • Regulatory Environment: restrictions on foreign investment and/or repatriation of profits
  • Investment Incentives


While the methodology for CLAA is the same for all projects, the difference between different countries and industries means that we are unable to offer this service at a package price. Please contact us for a quotation.
