Are there any government subsidies that affect a final location of the fashion outlet?
As this business is looking to open a store and factory, it is going to need suitable facilities to do so. This, however, is easy to come by in pretty much any country, so this isn’t necessarily a big deciding factor. The availability of facilities will come into play more once a country and region have been chosen.
Due to the oversaturation and little need of the fashion industry, there are no well-known government subsidies in place to affect the final location. This business will want its new store to be located in a non-corrupt country though as it is not ideal to locate in countries where there is a possible conflict. In countries like Syria where, at the time of writing (early 2018), there has been a war for seven years and counting, there is no demand for luxury fashion. Hundreds of thousands of people have fled the country so demand is down and also people are more focused on surviving rather than looking good. There would also be the very high possibility of getting caught up in the conflict and having the new stores/factories bombed – it would be a waste of time and investment. Hence, a list of several countries to avoid would include North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Myanmar, Yemen, Afghanistan, Syria, the Sahel, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ukraine and finally Venezuela. As a relation to the section on infrastructure, all of these countries are underdeveloped and so would be discounted for that reason anyway.
