Concrete Measures to Facilitate the Flow of Sustainable FDI: Online workshop for WTO delegates and government officials

Online workshop

Online Workshop, 11.03.2020


German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE), International Trade Centre (ITC)

This capacity-building workshop aims at providing ground-level perspectives on issues relating to investment facilitation for development to enrich the negotiations of a multilateral Framework on Investment Facilitation for Development, which will begin on 12 March 2020. The discussions draw on the practical experiences of those most directly engaged in investment facilitation, namely FDI service providers and representatives of international organizations providing technical assistance in FDI matters. Special attention will be given to ombudsperson-type functions/mechanisms and grievance-management mechanisms within governments.

The workshop is organized in the framework of the Investment Facilitation for Development (IF4D) project carried out by the International Trade Centre (ITC) and the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE). The workshop is meant for WTO delegates dealing with investment facilitation matters, as well as their colleagues in capitals who deal with this matter.
