At Communique International, we help countries and regions attract FDI that leads to faster economic growth and more and better jobs for citizens. We bring international best practice, methodology, tools and techniques and adapt them to the circumstances of individual countries and regions in a way that differentiates them from competitors.
Attracting inward investment is an extremely competitive process. There are more than 1,000 investment promotion agencies at national, regional and city level across the globe competing for this FDI. In this very competitive market IPAs face the enormous challenge of making their country or region more compelling as an investment destination than competitors.
Cost efficiency investors need to be persuaded that a country or region is:
- A viable option that should be investigated in greater detail
- Is a potentially good location from which to produce their products and services
- Is an efficient location for exporting those products or services.

- Identify the most appropriate and cost effective incentives to win FDI
- Build consensus with public and private stakeholders and win support from them for FDI strategies
