This one-day, interactive workshop will: (1) bring together global experts and business leaders to discuss current challenges and opportunities affecting foreign direct investment (FDI); (2) discuss the latest empirical data and innovative approaches implemented at the World Bank to retain and expand foreign investment; and (3) engage foreign investors in an interactive conversation about the practical implications and impacts of the options discussed for a way forward.

Meg Kinnear, ICSID Secretary-General, is a keynote speaker, and Frauke Nitschke, ICSID Senior Counsel, is participating as a panelist. .
