An investment promotion agency (IPA) is most often a government agency (or occasionally a non-profit organization functioning similar to a chamber of commerce) whose mission is to attract investment to a country, state, region or city. The agency does this by introducing investors with local real estate developers and other commercial service companies, providing userful statistical information such as average wages and by managing any investment incentives that the city, state or country may offer to companies which invest there.
