The organizations relevant to this selective directory include :

This is a "long list" of many firms which may be involved in the planning, development, and ongoing support of business investment projects in their specialties, including the support of foreign direct investment projects (FDI) into the area.  The focus of our work relates to major offices, factories, and distribution centers rather than retail and residential projects.

We provide personal introductory referrals to such contacts and other assistance according to the direct investment project interests of the corporate executives and business advisors we serve.
