The WORLD FORUM for Foreign Direct Investment provides a unique platform to network and discuss global location decisions amongst FDI dealmakers, including globally expanding companies, economic development and investment agencies, and the multipliers and site consultants who advise both parties.
The aims of the WORLD FORUM are to improve the dialogue between government and industry on global FDI — to provide a better understanding of the conditions which attract corporate investors and how to overcome the challenges companies face when setting up in new countries/cities/zones.
