INTERACTIVE BREAKFAST ENCOUNTER
Investment Policies and Practices for Global Value Chain Upgrading
Organized by the World Economic Forum (WEF), in collaboration with the International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development (ICTSD), the interactive dialogue will share examples of successful investment policy and practice interventions that improved the host country’s participation in global and regional value chains and boosted sustainable development impacts of investment for the local economy and society.
Issues for the debate:
- What barriers do small firms and developing country firms face in joining global and regional value chains and in upgrading?
- What are examples of successful investment policy and practice interventions that facilitated upgrading? SDG-focused investment promotion strategies
- What can related policies and practices – including in the areas of taxation, intellectual property, education, services and data/technology – do to support?
