MAPPING INVESTMENT PROMOTION AGENCIES BY COUNTRY AND REGION
The OECD is conducting a series of surveys of IPAs for OECD countries and different regions. These surveys, based on a comprehensive survey jointly designed with the Inter-American Development Bank, provide comparative evidence across agencies, categorise their profiles, and explain existing trends and practices in investment promotion and facilitation.
24/07/2019 - The study provides a thorough understanding of who the agencies are, what they do, and how they do it. Focusing in particular on the LAC region, this mapping exercise will enhance peer-learning amongst practitioners and policy makers, allowing them to benchmark their agencies against those of other countries and supporting reflections on future strategic orientations.
28/05/2019 - This report provides an inventory of existing practices among IPAs in eight southern Mediterranean economies: Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, the Palestinian Authority, and Tunisia.
22/10/2018 - This report provides an inventory of existing practices in Investment Promotion Agencies (IPAs) across 32 OECD countries. This mapping exercise covers a wide range of areas pertaining to investment promotion and facilitation with a view to enhancing peer-learning amongst practitioners.
