Implementation strategies with foreign investors

Now that you have your country or area competitively positioned and promoted, you will want to make strides towards closing deals with foreign firms looking for a good site to set up an offshore back office operation. Good candidates are typically firms with high-volume transactions such as airlines, brokerage firms, credit-card processing companies, financial institutions, insurance companies and marketing firms. Customer call centres in other time zones which wish to find partners rather than run 24-hour operations themselves are other possible clients.
