SERVICES
 

IBDE offers:

  • an independent and accessible platform for debate on the business, political, diplomatic issues impacting the world markets;

  • regular investment and trade forums exploring strategic business and investment opportunities in the countries represented at the Forum and encourage best business practice worldwide;
  • regular round table discussions to encourage new ideas and forward thinking in international business, trade, investment and commercial diplomacy;
  • a timely cost-effective approach to gaining country-specific knowledge and business acumen which often cannot be achieved by ‘best practice’ recipes imported from western countries;
  • frequent sessions covering international standards of business behaviour and diplomacy: how to cultivate and reinforce corporate ethics and credibility;

  • analysis of various governance systems and working cultures that differ from Western capitalism;

  • examination of International law and principles of treaty making (soft and hard law); regulation by international organisations (particularly as they affect international business), international arbitration, mediation and judicial settlements;

  • assessment of the functioning of intergovernmental bodies, such as the World Trade Organisation, the International Labour Organisation, plus other diverse global trading blocks.
