OECD Workshop on good practices in investment promotion and facilitation


 18 October 2016 OECD, Paris, France

This workshop brought together investment promotion agencies (IPAs) and policy makers from OECD countries and emerging economies to share their experiences and discuss good practices on investment promotion and facilitation.

The OECD has a long-standing experience in enhancing the contribution of international investment to growth and sustainable development by advancing investment policy reform and international co-operation. Increasingly, investment promotion and facilitation practitioners and researchers request the OECD to conduct in-depth work in this field and facilitate peer-learning. The OECD is seeking to contribute to the global thinking on investment promotion and facilitation and to support IPAs and policy makers make the most appropriate choices through analysis and experience sharing.


The workshop posed a series of issues for debate around the following topics:

  • putting investment promotion and facilitation in a broader policy context
  • choosing the appropriate structure and approaches to investment promotion and facilitation
  • measuring the performance of IPAs and the impact and effectiveness of investment promotion and facilitation
  • discussing the potential role of the OECD in these fields to support IPAs and policy makers
