THE INVESTMENT, TRADE AND DEVELOPMENT NEXUS

Organized together with the World Trade Organization (WTO), the high-level event will shed light on the evolving relationship between trade, investment and development in the new era of globalization and industrialization. Taking the Global Leaders Investment Summit outcome as basis, the event will focus on formulating coping strategies for developing countries to deal with the fallout of less labour-intensive terms-of-trade and asset-light investment.

Issues for the debate:

  • What strategies help developing countries cope with less labour-intensive terms-of-trade and asset-light investment?
  • How to translate such coping strategies into national and international policies?
  • What can international organizations do to help in this regard?
