It is widely accepted that international trade and investment are complementary to each other at the macro level. Investment flows to areas where the market opportunities are the greatest, resulting in greater integration of the markets. However, once the decision to invest abroad is made by companies, where they locate, (i.e. which states/regions in the host country the company will choose to locate) is not very well appreciated. In order to gain greater understanding of the factors affecting such decisions, this study seeks to identify the factors that are important to Canadian companies for investing in the United States, given their choice of locations in the U.S. The managers’ views of further U.S.-Canadian economic integration are also investigated and verified.
