MetadataZobrazit celý záznam
The geographical location of Ukraine provides a multitude of possibilities for successful investment activity. There are rich natural resources, a fertile soil and a qualified low-cost labour force. On the other hand, investors have to deal with historical ties to the Soviet Union, corruption, and political instability exacerbated by occupation of part of the territory by Russia. This paper deals with the possibility of identifying the investment attractiveness of the particular sectors in Ukraine by the level of concentration measured by the Herfindahl-Hirschman index. Accounting data of companies taken from the Orbis database are evaluated by ABC analysis and the general linear model. The results point to significant dependency of variables representing investment attractiveness on the Herfindahl-Hirschman index, where deviations are explained by sectoral specifics.
