Expansion and growth can come in many shapes and sizes, one of those lanes being foreign direct investments (FDI). Foreign Direct Investment or FDIs can be a great way to expand your business and reach new markets meaning new customers and clients. With foreign direct investments, there are many opportunities and advantages, but it is important to ensure you understand the ‘how’ of FDI.
