In 1995, OECD Ministers launched negotiations on a multilateral agreement on investment (MAI) with high standards of liberalisation and investment protection, with effective dispute settlement procedures, and open to non-Members. Negotiations were discontinued in April 1998 and will not be resumed.
This Introduction to the OECD Codes of Liberalisation was approved by the OECD Council in 1994 and published in 1995 as an OECD publication (out of print). The purpose of this Introduction is to contribute to a better understanding of the principles and procedures of the OECD Codes. It also provides detailed explanations of the coverage of the Codes and may therefore serve as a manual for Code users.
This document contains the text, commentary and implementation procedures from the 1991 Review of the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.

The instrument on international investment incentives and disincentives recognises that adhering countries may be affected by this type of measure and stresses the need to strengthen international co-operation in this area. It encourages them to make such measures as transparent as possible so that their scale and purpose can be easily determined.
