Learn how governments are streamlining and digitizing once-cumbersome administrative processes to make life easier for investors. 

Digital business environments are not only now expected by businesses but also boost investment, create jobs, enable countries to meet their investment facilitation commitments and will improve ratings in the World Bank’s upcoming Business Ready indicators. 

This event will highlight efforts being made by countries to successfully digitize key services, with results sometimes visible within months. The event will be interactive and include case studies and demonstrations. 

Session themes:

  • How can digitizing government services support investment facilitation? 
  • What are the benefits for governments and the private sector? 
  • What is the best way to move services online?
