WAIPA and the World Bank Group partnered to bring you an Executive Training on FDI. The course will take place on July 17-20 at the WAIPA Training Center at the Istanbul World Trade Center.

The training is tailored to executives and is free of charge for WAIPA members, with limited participation.

This 4-day training program will follow the investment life-cycle logic to help IPAs and policymakers strengthen capacities to more effectively attract, establish, retain and expand FDI, as well as to link it to domestic economies.

Sessions will include a combination of best-practice sharing, research summaries, moderated group discussions, a case study as well as insights from IPA management and investors, around the following topics:

• The evolution of FDI, its role in development, international investment agreements; • The relationship between trade and investment and the current debate on globalization;  • Diversifying the economy with FDI: from theory to practice • Anchoring Investment Policy Reforms: designing, approving and implementing investment laws; • Effective Investment Promotion to attract, establish, retain and expand FDI; • Removing Barriers to Entry; • Investment Incentives: types, and when they do work; • Making Investors Stay in the Long Term: investment protection, retention, and expansion • Promoting Linkages between FDI and the Local Economy: the missing link!

Facilitators and speakers will include specialists from the World Bank Group, WAIPA, as well as from selected National Investment Promotion Agencies and the business sector.
