The FDI Qualified Community Certification Program

International companies invest billions of dollars each year in greenfield projects across the USA, and communities eager to attract Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) can differentiate themselves through certification as an “FDI-Qualified Community”. Together with the Transatlantic Investment & Business Council (TBIC), Navigator Consulting has developed a certification program recognizing communities which offer the business location assets, cultural competence and communications expertise that international executives want. Eight Economic Development organizations have already qualified as FDI-Ready Communities after intensive assessment of each community’s workforce, education, logistics, quality of life, business infrastructure, industrial property and economic development leadership.
