The Centre for Business Prosperity are to present to you the third Data Speaks session that the CBP Data and Methodology Theme organises in collaboration with Bureau Van Dijk under the banner: “Understanding Globalisation and FDI: Orbis Cross-border Investment”.

The just purchased Orbis Cross-border Investment data are a great addition to the Orbis data we already have because it provides recent cross-border investment projects and deals. These include greenfield Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) projects and cross-border Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) deals. Therefore, it complements our research data resources and embody a major investment of CBP.

To understand how to use the database, we have invited BvD CBI specialist Fernando Gutierrez who will guide us through the database and provide examples of work using this data.

As always, there will be plenty of time for questions and discussions.

Furthermore, Prof Jun Du is planning to organise a Study Group on cross-border investment soon after this session. Please watch out for a call to join it.

The session will be a hybrid held online and in the Main Building 729 (The Studio). We welcome everyone join us in person which is always better.
