Strategy & Development
Practical and results driven strategiesContact
Wavteq develops practical and results driven strategies for economic development and investment promotion. Our strategic work is underpinned by our knowledge of real-life best practices from having worked with hundreds of economic development organizations (EDOs) on the business side of actually targeting companies for trade and investment.
Combined with our industry leading data and investment products we can help define the competitive advantage of a location, assess the opportunities, identify where there is market demand, and develop practical strategies that can be realistically implemented to generate more trade and investment.
As well as working directly with EDOs, we have successfully managed and implemented strategy projects in cooperation with key stakeholders at international cooperation agencies including the Inter-American Development Bank, UNCTAD, and the World Bank Group.
Wavteq develops strategies for countries, states, regions, cities, and industrial parks and zones. Our offer includes the following services:

Wavteq is committed to working with EDOs in emerging economies to support with capacity building, strategy development, market analysis and value proposition development. As a domain expert in both FDI and Sustainable Investment, we are uniquely placed to help emerging economies not only understand how to leverage best practice but also how to prepare for the next wave of international investment. This rapidly evolving paradigm is heavily influenced by the sustainability agenda.
We work directly with EDOs in emerging markets and with major international financial institutions and we also work as part of consortiums on larger ODA projects in emerging economies. We have a strong track record of success with the World Bank Group, Inter-American Development Bank, UNCTAD, DfiD, Trade Mark East Africa, and USAID. Our work in this area has spanned both Investment, Trade, and Tourism.
