    Michael Charlton, Think London's Chief, said: "London does not have the same resonance in China, Russia or Brazil as it does in India." 

        

    Charlton warned against complacency, however, saying that "FDI companies are continually re-evaluating their presence here ... More than half review their global strategy every three to five years, and thirteen percent do so every year."
