AFI members comprise a selection of the best international and purely Czech companies whose aim is to support investments and investors – from legal and tax consultants, personnel consultants, architects, project managers, to real estate consultants, construction and development companies.One of our most important roles is to be the first point of contact and to provide assistance with navigation and decision-making processes for every kind of incoming foreign business.
