OECD work on investment promotion and facilitation

 

MAPPING INVESTMENT PROMOTION AGENCIES BY COUNTRY AND REGION

The OECD is conducting a series of surveys of IPAs for OECD countries and different regions. These surveys, based on a comprehensive survey jointly designed with the Inter-American Development Bank, provide comparative evidence across agencies, categorise their profiles, and explain existing trends and practices in investment promotion and facilitation.

 

Mapping of IPAs in the Mediterranean Middle East and North Africa

Mapping of IPAs in OECD countries

22/10/2018 - This report provides an inventory of existing practices in Investment Promotion Agencies (IPAs) across 32 OECD countries.

4th Meeting of the OECD Investment Promotion Agency Network

 22 October 2019  Paris, France

Heads of IPAs, senior investment promotion practitioners and policy makers from OECD and partner countries will meet in Paris on 22 October 2019 for the fourth Meeting of the OECD IPA Network to share their experiences and discuss good practices on investment promotion and facilitation. Focus topics will include:

  • Investment facilitation and aftercare: what national and international measures can be taken by governments to reduce regulatory and administrative obstacles for companies willing to establish or reinvest in a given location? 
  • FDI benefits: how can governments adopt policies and strategies to maximise the benefits of foreign direct investment on their domestic economy while minimising potential costs?

The Mapping of IPAs in the Mediterranean Middle East and North Africa will be formally launched by the Deputy-Secretary General of the OECD together with high-level representatives from the region and the European Commission at a high-level lunch.

The event will also provide an opportunity for IPAs to conduct focused peer-to-peer exchanges in smaller groups of practitioners:

  • IPAs from OECD and selected Latin American countries will discuss policy advocacy and monitoring & evaluation in two break-out sessions.
  • IPAs of countries included in the OECD Eurasia Competitiveness Programme recently took part in the OECD-IDB Survey of IPAs. They will hold a dedicated session to present and discuss the survey’s preliminary findings.
