International investment policies in the evolving global economy
– open to media –
30/09/2015 - The global recovery is still hesitant and unemployment at record highs, despite ample liquidity in financial markets. OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría will open the 10th Global Forum on International Investment with Minister of Economy, Turkey, Nihat Zeybekci, to address policy options for sparking an investment comeback.
Organised back-to-back with the G20 meeting of Trade Ministers, the high-level event will discuss the state of international investment policies and identify possible impediments. It will focus on next-generation Free Trade Agreements and multinationals in global value chains for a more coherent and cohesive trade and investment regime.

The Forum supports the international investment policy community in its efforts to promote open, transparent and rules-based investment policy frameworks for growth and sustainable development worldwide through informed, evidencebased policy dialogue and peer learning on pressing current and emerging issues.
