Vilnius, Lithuania - 30 May 2000
OECD organised, in collaboration with the Lithuanian Government, a Conference on Fiscal Incentives and Competition for Foreign Direct Investment which was held in Vilnius, Lithuania, on 30 May 2000.
This Conference took place within the framework of the OECD Baltic Regional Programme and under the auspices of the OECD Committees on International Investment and Multinational Enterprises and on Fiscal Affairs and the Centre for Co-operation with Non-Members.
In recent years the Baltic Regional Programme has highlighted the importance of foreign direct investment (FDI) for the economic transformation of the Baltic States. At a Conference on FDI Policy and Private Sector Development in the Baltic States in Tallinn last November, the question of sustaining FDI inflows in the longer term as the region enters a post-privatisation phase emerged as a central issue against a background of growing competition to attract investment.
