          Investment Promotion Handbook For Diplomats
          Manual by Wessendorp, Paul, Whiteway, Paul, Wigren, Andreas, 2011, 78 pages
          Categories: Investment

          This handbook is aimed at diplomats who may be new to investment promotion. It deals with the role of diplomats posted abroad, seen from the perspective of the host country (i.e. the country receiving FDI). The handbook explains what FDI is, provides an insight into the process through which companies go when they are making investment decisions, and describes the parallel activity which governments undertake in order to persuade firms to locate in their economy. The intention is both to equip diplomats with the tools needed in the promotion of FDI and to give them confidence that many of their existing skills are directly relevant to the process.
