OECD Global Forum on International Investment “Enhancing the investment climate: the case of infrastructure”


6-7 November 2006, Istanbul, Turkey

Discussions at the 2006 Global Forum focused on international investor participation in infrastructure. Governments around the world are increasingly inviting international investment into their infrastructure sectors, to leverage public finance and in order to reap efficiency gains. Not all projects have been successful. The GFII discussed the experiences so far and aimed to establish success criteria, including regarding the domestic investment climate, modes of public-private co-operation and responsible business conduct. 


Investment policy using the Policy Framework for Investment was the organising theme of the forum.  Participating countries were invited to present their investment climate and policies, applying the Policy Framework for Investment by ways of self-assessment and encouraging peer discussions and comparisons with the experiences of other relevant countries.


Preceding the Forum, participants had an opportunity to take part in an OECD/Turkey Investment Roundtable.
