18.  How can I find out about investment practices in a certain country?

Country Commercial Guides (CCG's) examine each counrty's trade regualtions an investment practices, and present a comprehensive look at the commercial environment in various countries through economic, political and market analyses.  See question #4 for information on obtaining CCG's.

Country Reports on Economic Policy and Trade Practices are available on the NTDB for those countries that do not have a CCG.  These reports describe in detail the trade and investment climate in each country.  The Country Reports, along with CCG's and Country Background Notes are available in the State Department home page at: http://www.state.gov (under "Business Services").
