Foreign Direct Investment (FDI)
MCP works with local companies, financial institutions, training facilities and government agencies to help foreign investors identify investment opportunities and partners, work through the transaction process, and ensure seamless project roll-out.
The MCP Foreign Investment Program offers a series of services to foreign investors interested in pursuing the following business ventures:
- Greenfield investments – large or small
- Joint ventures and strategic partnerships
- Brownfield investments and expansions
- Equity investments (minority or majority) in existing enterprises
- Merger and acquisitions
MCP is well positioned to facilitate investments in the country’s growth sectors, including recent and ongoing support of initiatives in light manufacturing (automotive/tool and die, construction, home hardware, textiles/apparel, furniture and industrial products); ICT (software development, digital animation, BPO services and call centers) and other services (finance, logistics and real estate).
For investors, MCP offers a dedicated team to help accelerate roll-out while reducing costs and risks. Here’s how:
- Opportunity Validation – Leveraging MCP’s network and resources to support investors through the initial stages of an investment. Includes presenting and screening investment opportunities, validating investment feasibility, developing investment proposals, screening sites and partners, creating linkages with service providers and facilitating initial contacts with relevant government and institutions.
- Deal Structuring, Local Partner Financing and Technical Support – Working with investors and selected local partners (when applicable) to work through negotiations and structure deals, including assistance with due diligence. MCP can also assist local partners in accessing finance for their share of a venture and obtaining technical support for re-organizing and developing specific capabilities to move partnerships forward.
- Workforce Development – Enabling investors to ramp up project roll-out by addressing immediate and longer-term employee training needs. Includes a revolving fund for rapid skills development and engagement with local training institutions and universities to develop a pipeline of qualified candidates to meet specific workforce needs.
- Troubleshooting – Working with investors, government agencies and local service providers to identify and mitigate potential issues prior to project roll-out or to troubleshoot bottlenecks or implementation gaps as they arise.
