Lack of reliable business information, excessive red tape and inefficiency all has a negative effect on foreign direct investment (FDI) attraction. The two sessions of this workshop, organized by UNCTAD and the World Bank Group, will explore the importance of offering strong investor facilitation services, and outline practical tools that are available to help perform this task.

Effective Facilitation of Agribusiness and Tourism FDI

The role of IPAs, in providing timely and relevant country and sector information through tailored facilitation efforts for each investor, is more important than ever. The launch of the results of GIPB 2012 will present practical strategies and tools to help IPAs improve the efficiency of their facilitation services, focused specifically on agribusiness and tourism.
