This is a global directory of the locations and websites of US Department of Commerce - International Trade Administration - US Foreign Commercial Service offices at US embassy and consulate offices for quick reference.
A list of offices is also available at http://www.buyusa.gov/home/worldwide_us.html
US executives may need such contacts as they plan capital investment projects in other countries, such as to network with peers and local professional service providers - lawyers, accountants, tax advisors, etc. The Commerce offices generally maintain useful reference lists of local professionals on their websites, although they don't individually endorse or recommend their services.
Their networks of contacts and "lessons learned" by prior US investors and issues about doing business in these countries may be helpful background.
Refer also to the directory of American Chambers of Commerce (AmChams) in other countries.
Foreign executives with existing or planned foreign direct investment projects into the USA may also find these US Department of Commerce offices and Invest in America to be helpful to answer questions about the process of investing into the USA as one of the most open economies in the world.
