International competitive intelligence research URLS

At a conference in Washington DC, just before submitting this copy, I listened to a presentation by Sheri R. Lanza, President of Global Info Resources Inc., who discussed the differences between Internet-based market research in the UK or USA by locally located researchers and remote research of third country markets. Sheri, due to looming deadlines, was unable to write an article for Internet News but has passed on the URLs that she considers a good starting point for such international competitive intelligence research. These URLs are provided below.
