|Some magazines which
publish articles about direct investment projects and locations use staff
writers, free-lance writers, and leading professional contacts to develop
reasonably independent and thorough, well-researched articles about
Executives should note that not all magazines do this.
In any case, some articles may be of a heavily promotional
nature, highlighting positive attributes about areas, with special coverage
of areas which advertise and maintain close working relationships.
It is not necessarily objective, investigative journalism
to provide a more balanced overview or to identify problems which may prove
to be critical for the interests of a specific investor.
The articles can be useful background, but readers should be
cautious in their review of the content.
|Some magazines publish
articles which, although similar in appearance to independently researched
reports, are more comparable to paid "advertorials" based mainly on content
provided by advertisers, whether or not such relationships are disclosed
openly to readers.
Investors are cautioned in general about reliance on
content in such magazines which may be less objective than it sometimes
The tendency of some publications and advertisers to
promote their services as equivalent to, or a substitute for, the work of
independent location consultants or other professional services is
unfortunate in this regard.
These can all be useful services, but they are not the same.
In the same context, professional location consultants are generally very
reluctant to be quoted publicly on any negative knowledge about areas.
Magazine content is generally planned and prepared
according to the objectives, choices, and scope of knowledge and contacts of
the publisher, editor, and writer or researchers involved, which may not
always be what is necessary to address the needs of executives who are
planning specific investment projects.
The content of any published information should therefore
be read in this context as potentially useful background information for
investment planning purposes, but the content is not warranted as reliable
information on which to base specific investment decisions.
Investors responsible for major projects are cautioned to do
their own "due diligence" work thoroughly to confirm that their decisions
are based upon timely and accurate knowledge of all critical issues for
their projects. The direct investment market is dynamic, so historical
information should be used in that context.
