23/11/2009 - The global economy is recovering faster than expected but remains fragile. How quickly will global trade and investment bounce back after the sharp falls of the past year? What role can international investment play in building a stronger, cleaner, fairer global economy?
These are among the issues to be discussed by government ministers, business leaders and academics at the OECD Global Forum on Investment from 7-8 December 2009 at the OECD Conference Centre in Paris.
OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría will give a keynote speech at 09.30 am on Monday 7 December.
This event is open to the media.

Marco Vinicio Ruiz, Minister for Trade, Costa Rica; Dr. Ibrahim Assane Mayaki, Chief Executive Officer, NEPAD; and Assistant Secretary of State for Economic, Energy and Agricultural Affairs, designate, United States.
