The 10th Annual Forum of Developing Country Investment Negotiators is organized by the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) and the South Centre and co-hosted by the Board of Investment of Sri Lanka.
The meeting will provide an opportunity to discuss the state of play of the current framework on international investment and on-going discussions and negotiations at the bilateral, regional and multilateral levels.
It will also be a follow-up on the outcomes of last year’s event in Rio de Janeiro, “Investment Treaties in a State of Flux: Strategies and opportunities for developing countries,” to further flesh out strategic approaches available to developing and emerging economies and to re-design the international system to contribute to their economic and social development in a sustainable way.
Sharing of ideas and experiences among developing country officials with the aim of identifying potential solutions to the issues faced by countries and finding common ground and ways forward, are welcome.
Date: November 7–9, 2016
