Latin America and Caribbean-OECD Investment Initiative


The Latin America and Caribbean-OECD Investment Initiative aims to increase the contribution of private investment to economic and social development in Latin America and the Caribbean. It does so through peer dialogue, both between governments as well as between governments and investors.

The Initiative helps governments create better policies at three levels:

  • through general improvements to the investment climate (e.g. trade facilitation, investment incentives and links to related policies based on the OECD Investment Policy Framework (PFI));
  • through more focused approaches that reflect the particular needs of specific sectors (e.g. investment in agriculture or in economic zones);
  • through initiatives that enhance the development contribution of private investment (e.g. creating fairer public-private partnerships for essential infrastructure and linking investment policies with other sustainable policies (quality of investments)).

The Initiative was officially launched in September 2010 in Santiago, Chile.

The Initiative inscribes itself into and supports the OECD LAC Regional Programme.
