My Favourite Tipples are shared by Amy Burns, research manager for Jinfo and former research manager in the professional services industry. Amy shares a few of her favourite online sources for country research that she collected over her 18 years doing due diligence and strategy work for retail and consumer products consulting clients.
Much of this "Top 5" list that I pulled together comes from my work helping retail and consumer products clients investigate new countries for retail locations, manufacturing bases or new product development/sourcing partners. These are primarily focused on what one would use as a US company expanding to new countries, but the country information should be relevant for all readers.
One of the first stops was to create a profile of potential countries/regions of interest, then work to a more granular level of company/site/partner level information. So, for information regarding doing business around the globe, I would also reference the following sites (in addition to many of the excellent paid subscription services available):
