Private investment is crucial for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Developing countries, in particular, need to be able to better identify and facilitate the kind of investment that will contribute to their sustainable development. This session will look at practical examples of investment facilitation for sustainable development, as well as the broader mechanisms through which it can be achieved. It will focus on potential tools to measure the quality as opposed to the quantity of investment.

In order to attend this session, you must be registered for the WTO Public Forum.
