As the world continues its shift to a knowledge-based economy, with a focus on services, competition for the best and brightest minds is intensifying. Long-term economic competitiveness requires companies to effectively attract the best minds, move service providers and employees across borders and ensure that domestic companies can compete internationally. Governments from around the world have introduced tax initiatives and immigration policies to help incentivize innovation and allow for movement across borders. The focus of this presentation is on the unique tax and immigration incentives offered by several major economies to encourage domestic R&D, and attract and retain talent. Panelists will analyze and discuss the incentives offered by each country, identifying successful policies and areas of improvement and where appropriate, discuss the actual or potential impact of the trade agreements.
