Ambassador’s Roundtable on Investing in Sustainable Development: The Way Forward

The Ambassadors’ Roundtable on Investing in Sustainable Development: The Way Forward will close the seventh World Investment Forum with a deliberation of the key take-aways from the Forum for the Geneva investment-development community and beyond. Specifically, Permanent Representatives will reflect on key outcomes of the Forum for the future work of UNCTAD and the broader Geneva international organization setting in re-igniting the investment engine of growth and its contribution to sustainable development. 

The event will close with the Secretary-General’s WIF2021 Closing Remarks.
