International investment is one of the main drivers of globalisation so sound policies towards investment are vital for world prosperity and stability. The OECD works with regions and economies around the world to help improve the investment climate.
International investment spurs prosperity and economic development in home and recipient countries. Policy coordination helps governments resist protectionist pressures and develop effective policies. The OECD's Freedom of Investment process brings together some 56 governments from around the world to exchange information and experiences on investment policies at regular roundtables.
G20 Leaders are firmly committed to open trade and investment and to resisting protectionism in all its forms. They have mandated WTO, OECD and UNCTAD – the leading international organisations in the area of international trade and investment policies – to monitor policy developments and report publicly on these commitments.
For almost 60 years, the OECD Code of Liberalisation of Capital Movements has provided a balanced framework for allowing countries to progressively remove barriers to the movement of capital, while providing flexibility to cope with situations of economic and financial instability. A review of the Code was adopted in 2019 to strengthen the instrument and respond to new financial stability challenges.
Paris, 22 October 2019: This workshop will bring together heads of IPAs, senior investment promotion practitioners and policy makers from OECD and partner countries will meet in Paris on 22 October 2019 for the fourth Meeting of the OECD IPA Network to share their experiences and discuss good practices on investment promotion and facilitation.
This report provides an inventory of existing practices among IPAs in eight southern Mediterranean (MED) economies: Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, the Palestinian Authority, and Tunisia. Each MED country has one national IPA with the exception of Tunisia, where three agencies have investment promotion functions. The survey was therefore conducted with ten different agencies.
