IPA EXECUTIVE BREAKFAST [virtual] (in partnership with WAIPA)

New investment promotion strategies in the post-pandemic era

This virtual event occurs in Geneva Time (CET, GMT+2). Abu Dhabi, UAE time is 2:00 hours ahead of Geneva, Switzerland.

The COVID crisis has revealed the value of investment promotion agencies (IPAs) as intermediaries between governments and their business communities. Many IPAs played a critical role in helping investors through the crisis and in mobilizing private sector support for efforts to combat shortages, particularly with respect to personal protective equipment. IPAs also showed the ability to adapt quickly, continuing and expanding their service offering under very difficult circumstances.

The Executive Breakfast will feature a presentation by a prominent figure in the investment promotion community who will reflect on the transformation that IPAs have experienced and on what to expect in the “New Normal”. How can international investment contribute better to sustainable and inclusive development?
