The DBI guides are co-published with the national governments of the country covered.
For example, in Chile the government partners are ProChile, InvestChile and the Foreign Investment Committee. These three agencies are part of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Trade. Other Chilean “second-tier” partners include Chile IT and Wines of Chile.
In Nigeria, the partners are the NIPC (Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission), and the Ministry of Trade and Investment. Second tier partners include the Nigerian Ports Authority and others under negotiation.
The government partners are responsible for printing and distributing copies of the DBI publication, namely to their foreign network of antennae (embassies, chambers of commerce, ministerial road shows, etc.).
Mediaside is responsible for creating the contents, doing the layout, coordinating the printing and recruiting sponsors.
