We have also added a new listing for investment support in Afghanistan, where new industrial parks and infrastructure are being developed as the country is rebuilt.
When preparing GUIDE Network Survey responses, good examples to consider would be the recent additions listed above, or the one from Location : Switzerland .  Published responses become easy to find quickly through our Google site search feature whenever the content is relevant to the interests of an executive or professional business advisor. We have temporarily listed some of our many personal contacts just to demonstrate the potential value of this service to highlight their areas.  These examples will be removed unless updated information is received for publication through the Survey process.  Refer also to our new service at www.OnTheShortList.com to arrange consultant research visits.
See also GUIDE Area Profiles and regional directory lists of contacts for use by executives and their professional advisors, such as location consultants.

GUIDE Area Profiles provide executive summary presentations with more community profile details than the Survey responses below, with more links to content of frequent interest to executives.  Area Profiles involve a closer working relationship throughout the year. SICR participation supports our corporate relationship work for relevant referrals.

See the further explanation of this section below, or the Survey form.

There are also GUIDE Service Profiles describing the scope of services, specialties, experience and capabilities of professional service providers, including those who provide services for economic development organizations.  There are also extensive directory lists of professional service providers for reference by executives.  Firms may appear in both global lists and regional or state directories as appropriate, according to their known capabilities.

There are thousands of economic development organizations worldwide.  Many of their websites can be found quickly and easily through selective contact lists we maintain for the convenience of executives and professional advisors who use this website for reference.

Some areas choose to use our GUIDE Network Survey process to not only share basic information about their areas with us (free), but also to summarize and share it openly through our website.  The Survey responses briefly highlight why an area may be of special interest for a potential project. 

We also provide GUIDE Area Profiles and Service Profiles through a closer working relationship to share additional knowledge, contacts, and information sources for some areas so that it is easier for executives and their advisors to recognize why an area may be worth consideration for an investment project, and find the information they need.

GUIDE (Globally Uniform Investment Data & Experience) involves a variety of small services to organize and present timely knowledge about business locations and professional service providers in a globally consistent way.

This supports our own referral work, which reflects more market knowledge than we can openly publish, as we independently reach executives and advisors to support their project interests.

It also makes such knowledge conveniently available to executives and advisors.  This shared market knowledge will grow as areas choose to actively participate.

There is a small fee for the work involved to publish Survey replies, as per the Order Form which summarizes our GUIDE and SICR services for economic development.
