Investment for development

Greater Mekong Subregion Investment Policy Forum


28-29 March 2012 - Phnom Penh, Cambodia


Fuelled by the expansion of trade and investment, the Greater Mekong Subregion has been one of the fastest growing regions in the world and represents a successful example of economic transition and integration. Economic growth is underpinned by new political dynamics at the national level.


Many development challenges nevertheless remain and it is imperative to address both national and regional investment policy challenges to maintain the momentum of recent advances and strengthen the policy frameworks for investment.

Against this backdrop, this Forum provided a regional platform for participating countries to showcase their current reforms, and increase the subregion's visibility to international investors. It also helped raise awareness of the investment policy challenges in the region and how international initiatives, such as the OECD Policy Framework for Investment, can help address these.


The Greater Mekong Subregion Investment Policy Forum was jointly organised with the Council for the Development of Cambodia and ASEAN, and sponsored by the government of Japan.
