World Investment Forum (18-22 April 2008)
The World Investment Forum will explore future developments in FDI flows: where they will come from; where they will go; which sectors and industries will account for these flows, and what the new features of the corporate strategies that are driving the process will be.
Particular emphasis will be placed on the new opportunities and challenges for investors, how global value chains and business linkages are evolving and how emerging economies can accelerate the development process through FDI.
Participants will include high-level Government officials and business leaders from both developed and developing countries; senior representatives from chambers of commerce and business councils, heads of inward and outward investment promotion agencies (IPAs) from 192 countries; and key global and African media.
The forum will provide an unprecedented opportunity to meet and interact through a series of conferences, networking and social events.
