Supported by the presentation of the salient findings and key policy recommendations of the two studies, the break-out session will spur deliberations among policy practitioners, experts and other stakeholders on the most appropriate policies to attract productive investment from within the continent and beyond, as well as on the future of investment policy regulation on the continent.
