Global Business Services

encouraging economic development

IVC supports economic development efforts by arranging professional counterpart meetings between visitors and local business, which gives our Consular Corps members a "handshake advantage" in international business by providing a contact in emerging markets.

IVC provides a number of opportunities throughout the year for you to gain a "handshake advantage" by meeting visiting international professionals from around the world.  This is a fantastic and inexpensive way for you to make a contact in another country and learn about a culture in which you wish to do business.   Click here to join IVC's Consular Corps and begin meeting new clients today.
