This report provides an inventory of existing practices in Investment Promotion Agencies (IPAs) across 32 OECD countries. This mapping exercise covers a wide range of areas pertaining to investment promotion and facilitation with a view to enhancing peer-learning amongst practitioners. It will allow practitioners and policy makers to benchmark their agencies against those of other countries and help them to better grasp the similarities and differences across agencies.
The report has been prepared in close consultation with IPAs and is based on an extensive survey designed and conducted in partnership with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). Using the same survey, the OECD and the IDB are preparing a further report covering countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.
This report will also help to pave the way for further analytical and evidence-based investment promotion work on topics of interest to both OECD and non-OECD countries.
