company planning to relocate its headquarters to the city.


Aftercare Berlin has secured the third spot for FDI Strategy, showing a tremendous commitment to its businesses throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. The public–private partnership Berlin Partner has established a tele- phone hotline and provides support for Berlin’s development bank IBB’s hotline. The city reports that by August 2020, more than 15,000 com- panies had received advice through the hotlines. The city has also launched a


matching platformfor jobs in crisis- related and system-relevant areas. In addition to emergency funding schemes during the pandemic, Berlin offers a ‘GRW Program’ of grants in order to support the creation of per- manent jobs, as well as a ‘ProFIT’ pro- ject financing programto assist R&D projects, cementing its reputation as an innovation hub. The panel has deemed Berlin to


offer the best aftercare, with a spe- cific aftercare and retention team supporting existing companies and investors. Berlin Partner’s consult- ants guide investors and companies through their entire project, sup- porting them in each step from find- ing premises and financing options to recruitment and administrative matters.


Honourable mentions The city of Debrecen, Hungary, has also impressed judges with its after- care strategy, after showing a com- mitment to fostering collaborationin the business community with events such as the Business Expat Club and the monthly Debrecen Business Services Center Roundtable. In addi- tion, quarterly organised roundta- bles to allow leaders in human resources the opportunity to share experiences and learning. The city’s all-inclusive approach to helping companies locate offices, and offer support services andemployer brand- ing is an indication of the level of aftercare support businesses can hope to find. Dubai’s success with regards to


infrastructure and urban develop- ment projects has also been noted by the judges, particularly with invest- ments in more green development projects, such as their Green Dubai Project and the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary development.■
