Although you must be very careful of the scams, that are advertised, especially so, on alibaba.com, It's best only to deal with paid up members.

Visit the embassies and/or trade offices for the countries in question. They will have hard copies of directories - I've done this myself and most were very helpful.

I've found that online directories can be very out of date.
