The OECD contributes to global thinking and international co-operation on investment promotion and facilitation through analysis and experience sharing. In 2016, the OECD IPA Network was created under the auspices of the OECD Investment Committee and brings together senior investment promotion practitioners to facilitate peer-learning on issues of common interest.

The Network’s main objectives are:

  • To bring together a community of like-minded investment promotion practitioners willing to engage in discussions, exchanges and experience sharing;
  • To benefit from OECD expertise to gather, build and use knowledge and evidence-based analysis on investment promotion and related topics; and
  • To engage with policy makers and IPAs from other regions.

The OECD IPA Network has established itself as an important forum for exchange and networking among practitioners from IPAs across the OECD area and beyond. The Network provides tailored policy analysis and advice to IPAs in the OECD area and around the world. It forms an important cornerstone of the OECD’s work on international investment. The thematic discussions, which take place during annual meetings every October, advance collective understanding on issues of joint interest and facilitate exchanges on best practices.

The OECD IPA Network is chaired by Achim Hartig, Managing Director at Germany Trade and Invest, and closely advised by a Steering Group composed of the IPAs from Canada, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Finland, Germany (chair), Ireland, Israel, Luxembourg, Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
