There are many sectors that are ripe for investment in Tallinn. In recent years, newcomers have found success in everything from shipbuilding to worm farming.
Tallinn is perhaps best known for its well-preserved Old Town, the area of streets, houses, churches and squares that have been developed from the 13th to 16th centuries, when it flourished as a Hanseatic trading centre. The city and Estonia in general are now becoming increasingly known as a centre of business and innovation.
Looking for an investment opportunity? Can’t decide which country to move your business to? In 2011, The UK attracted more foreign direct investment (FDI) than any other European country. And this trend looks likely to continue, with the energy sector regarded as one of the main industries likely to flourish, with excellent opportunities available and government support.
Cornwall is located in the far west of Great Britain, surrounded to the east by the county of Devon, to the north and west by the Atlantic Ocean, and to the south by the English Channel. It has long established itself as an ideal location for investment for various economic sectors, including marine and food, but most prominently, the environmental and renewable energy industries.
Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly is the natural home for the rapidly growing marine energy industry – with rich opportunities for trialling new technologies, a strong skills base, funding and business support.
In 1991, the UK’s first commercial on-shore wind farm was opened in Delabole, North Cornwall. Ten turbines were installed, with an annual output of about 12m kw/h – enough to power around 2700 homes each year. This is now one of seven commercial wind farms in Cornwall, which together produce the equivalent of the power used by 25,000 homes.
