Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is vital to maintain and strengthen economic growth, integrate countries into the global economy, boost technological innovation and know-how, enhance skills transfer and contribute to the creation of decent work. Investment Promotion Agencies (IPAs) are the public face of governments seeking to increase investment and promote economic and social development. They are often instrumental in negotiating investment treaties, and in concluding investment contracts; and manage investment relationships through after care services.
