Corporation with an International Government Relations Department

If you are the manager of a corporation with activities around the world, this site contains useful information to help you and your business associates to deal with governments in resolving problems related to the full gamut of government policies, regulations, measures and practices that affect your business. Governmental actions, however legitimate or illegitimate, inevitably affect your costs and revenues, and hence the bottom-line. It is important, therefore, that you give the same care and attention to your government relations strategy and activities as you give to your business strategy and the commercial activities of the firm.

If your firm has a team devoted to managing relationships with foreign governments, this site can help your government relations team to upgrade and hone their professional skills and to get information about global best practices used by the top professionals in the field. Since the government relations team cannot cover all contacts with foreign governments, this site can also give many of the other managers who have to deal with governments in the course of their work a much better appreciation of what is involved in addressing regulatory issues and managing relationships with foreign governments. In either case you may want to explore the resources on this site for practitioners of commercial diplomacy. You may also find it useful to develop an in-house training program for managers who have frequent contacts with foreign governments. The introductory text for educators could give you a good overview on how you could use the resources on this site to develop such a training program. A model program of 15 modules that could be taught over a relatively short period from one to three weeks, or in weekly sessions spread over 15 weeks is in preparation.
