The Market for Global Direct Investment

This section will be used to share information about developments in the global direct investment market which may be identified by GDI Solutions research work and contacts, and considered to be worth sharing with participants on a very selective basis.  We will highlight major developments - not every project.

See also the illustrative template for a Profile of a past project.  We can publish GUIDE Project Profiles in cooperation with participating area representatives, and there is a separate process for GUIDE Testimonials about areas and services.

We are not trying to track and report all project announcements.  There are existing service providers who provide such tracking research work.  We want to highlight major projects of potential interest to executives, and make it easier for them to find such information at the time when they need such knowledge for their own plans.  Unlike other types of project announcements, our focus is to organize knowledge which will help other investors and their advisors to research and plan for future projects.

New Service : Suggestions are welcome

The following table will summarize publicly available information, or additional research by GDI Solutions or participants with approval of the executives involved.  It highlights major projects which may be of special interest to executives even if they were not supported directly by GDI Solutions or active participants in our services. 

Refer also to the "Projects" section, which will selectively summarize major projects which GDI Solutions or participants in our services have supported.  These are also highlighted through links from the GUIDE Area Profile service.

Some projects may also be highlighted in the "Special Interest" or "News" sections as appropriate, particularly when a project announcement is still timely news.

The listings are simply intended to be helpful to the executives and active participants or contacts of GDI Solutions who may be unfamiliar with such projects, and may benefit from knowledge shared openly through this process, including investor feedback about "lessons learned" and "proven solutions" during the planning process in the context of specific investment needs.

This table may link to further details published elsewhere about services provided for such projects, or about the decision process and outcome.  As this list grows, the content will be divided into multiple pages, such as by region or other attributes.

It may also link to further information about the service providers involved, as found in the section on "Participants" and other contacts, such as through the regional tables of area representatives and other sources of project support.
