Time: 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is an integral part of an open and effective regional economic development system and can be a major catalyst to development. The practice of FDI can be complex, as it requires that a region has a good understanding of their existing industrial clusters, what opportunities exist for FDI, how to attract foreign companies and the tools that can support FDI. This webinar, in partnership with Ohio University, will look at federal and state resources for FDI, how to assess FDI opportunities in your area, the needs of foreign companies in setting up a new location, the growing interest in Reshoring as a result of COVID 19, and the practical aspect of international economic development.
