This lunch will explore options to help build and strengthen the human, institutional and governance capacity of the most vulnerable countries. The discussions will also consider how national and international policies can be tailored to create an enabling environment for private sector development.

Elements for the debate:

  • What strategies can vulnerable countries pursue to improve their investment climate?
  • What contribution can the international development community make to facilitate increased investment flow to vulnerable economies?
  • How can private investors be encouraged to more actively contribute to skills and technology dissemination to the benefit of these countries?
