Utah Global Forum
The Utah Global Forum facilitates the dialogue on how businesses can expand beyond local boundaries and develop an import and export strategy to expand into the global marketplace. The program offers an incredible breadth of content, bringing experts from across multiple industries, all with a single objective: move Utah businesses to the global business stage and meet the challenges of today’s business environment.
The Utah Global Forum also especially focuses on Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in Utah. FDI represents an opportunity to become more actively involved in international business activities for businesses of all sizes. FDI takes many forms, such as a direct acquisition, construction of facilities, investment in a joint venture, or strategic alliance with a local firm with technology or licensing of intellectual property.
