In today's global economy, North America is widely viewed by international firms as a strong investment option. In 2011, Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in North America continued to grow, and global FDI increased by 5.6%, resulting in the creation of over 2 million jobs worldwide. FDI programs are a constructive approach to attract new investment and jobs to your community. Whether your organization is urban or rural, vast opportunities exist for a competitive FDI program to thrive. How can your community develop a successful FDI strategy?

Join IEDC on December 14 and learn about the strategies that work when it comes to FDI attraction, including working with consulates and engaging with consultants abroad. Our expert speakers will share their extensive experience in different markets and break down how successful FDI attraction programs can be implemented at the local level. Learn the strategies organizations can employ for FDI attraction, in the long term, as well as in the near future.
