US executives who are considering new investments into other countries may want to network among peers and professional service providers through organizations such as the American Chambers of Commerce.

For convenience, we have provided a global directory of the websites of American chambers for quick reference.

Similarly, executives of other countries may wish to consider contact with Chambers in US states and cities - whether affiliated with the US Chamber of Commerce or perhaps foreign chambers from their own country.  There are also various "expatriate" networks which may be helpful for both business and personal insights from peers about living and doing business in other countries.
The US Department of Commerce produces industry research reports by their trade development specialists.
Other national and state economic development, trade and investment promotion organizations may publish useful industry research reports for their areas.  The fDi Links search tool can also be useful to quickly find fDi magazine articles about many industry sectors.

Refer to our global directories or the search tool in the header above to find such organizations, or use selective research tools such as USA Search, Europe Search, or Media Search at or the new Search: Americas regional and state tools on this site.
