WAIPA is very delighted to be part of the 10th anniversary of the World Investment Forum 2018, which will take place from 22 to 26 October 2018 at the Palais des Nations in Geneva, Switzerland.
Organized under the overall theme “Investing in Sustainable Development”, the 2018 Forum will address global challenges for international investment in the new era of globalization and industrialization. It will provide opportunities for open dialogues among all investment stakeholders, brainstorming of solution-oriented initiatives and fostering global partnerships to advance prosperity for all.
On 22 October, first day of the forum a WAIPA workshop will be organized. This workshop will provide investment promotion officials key information and guidance on how to engage in the targeting and facilitation of investment in SDG-related projects. Best practices, feedback, and insights from investment promotion agencies will be incorporated in UNCTAD’s investment related research and technical cooperation programme.
