This paper explores the determinants of manufacturing and non-manufacturing inbound foreign direct investment (FDI) location within and between the UK's core (the Southeast) and non-core (West Midlands; Wales; Scotland and the Northwest) regions. It highlights the relative influence of regional, national and EU level factors and government policy over FDI location at the UK regional level, and into their variation between regions and sectors of industry. The resultant implications for government policies towards inbound FDI are also considered, including the desirability of allowing them to vary from region to region, if FDI inflows are to be maximised
