This paper aims to help businesses to throw light on potential sources of geographic advantage, we assessed the competitiveness of countries using the five dimensions: talent,  capital, resources, consumers and trade and innovation. The analysis provides executives with a more sophisticated understanding of the elements and alternatives that will help them formulate their own geographic strategy. In adopting a more diverse portfolio of geographic options, not only can businesses spread risk more effectively, but they can also ensure that they locate in the most advantageous places in the global economy.
