Foreign Investment Frameworks

Workshop on “Foreign Investment Frameworks”

Monday, 17 May 2021 at 13:00 hours (Mauritius Time)

TIME ZONE CONVERTER

 

The Regional Centre of Excellence (“RCE”) of the Financial Services Commission, Mauritius in collaboration with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (“OECD”), has the pleasure to invite you or your representative from your organisation to attend a virtual workshop on “Foreign Investment Frameworks” on Monday 17 May 2021 at 13.00 hrs.

 

This upcoming workshop, in association with the OECD, will cover regional applications for two major international policy instruments to address the challenges of investment attraction and ensuring it contributes fully to the achievement of host country national economic objectives and international aims, including the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

 

The workshop will be split into two sessions namely: OECD Policy Framework for Investment (“PFI”) and OECD Foreign Direct Investment (“FDI”) Qualities Policy Toolkit.  The first session will introduce the PFI and discuss the insights from applying the PFI in over thirty emerging economies through OECD Investment Policy Reviews. The second session on FDI will provide advice on how governments can enhance the contribution of FDI to meeting the Sustainable Development Goals.

 

OECD Policy Framework for Investment (“PFI”)

The objective of the PFI is to mobilise private investment that supports steady economic growth and sustainable development, contributing to economic and social well-being around the world. It is non-prescriptive and emphasizes on policy coherence. It eschews one-size-fits-all solutions and encourages policy makers to ask appropriate questions about their economies, their institutions and their policy settings.

 

OECD Foreign Direct Investment (“FDI”) Qualities Policy Toolkit

To address the complex mix of policies and institutions necessary to ensure that foreign investment contributes to the greatest extent to achieve the SDGs, the Policy Toolkit will focus on the nexus between the general policies and approaches of the PFI with more specific policies in each of the following clusters: productivity and innovation; employment, job quality and skills; gender equality; and low carbon transition.
