FDI promotion and resources

I've just come across the Foreign Direct Investment Promotion Center, which has been developed by the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA), an arm of the World Bank Group.

The website is available in English, Russian, Arabic and Serbian, (yes, Serbian), offering toolkits, research resources, e-learning and opportunities to promote oneself.

It has an impressive list of members, and the service is currently free. You have to register to access the resources for market research for prospective investors. 571 are listed currently. Short movies of testimonials from users suggest that the toolkits have been very useful to government agencies in setting up investment promotion agencies.

Registration was a bit awkward when it came to choosing an organisation. The process would have lost marks in a usability test, but I did succeed.
