International investment spurs prosperity and economic development in home and recipient countries. Policy coordination helps governments resist protectionist pressures and to develop effective policies to respond to genuine concerns raised by international investment.

 

The Freedom of Investment process, an intergovernmental forum hosted since 2006 by the OECD Investment Committee, brings together some 55 governments from around the world to exchange information and experiences on investment policies at regular roundtables (Roundtable summary reports). Here, governments develop guidance for open, transparent and non-discriminatory investment policies. Unbiased policy monitoring and analysis support accountability and frank and open exchange.

 

Setting standards and developing guidelines

Co-operation requires common understanding of policy measures and objectives. The Freedom of Investment roundtables foster this understanding by developing standards that reflect partners’ expectations and good policy practices. These standards promote openness, transparency and non-discrimination and responsible conduct by both governments and investors.

Investment policy monitoring

Informed dialogue on investment policy requires unbiased, comprehensive and reliable information. Independent policy monitoring by the OECD provides policymakers and investors with up-to-date information on the preparation or introduction of new policies in countries that take part in the process. 


Acknowledging the roundtables’ established investment policy monitoring, G20 Leaders gave OECD a mandate to track policy developments and to report, with WTO and UNCTAD, on observance of G20 commitments to openness.
 

Research and analysis

Research and comparative analysis help to foster better policy design and implementation.
