Monitoring investment and trade measures

 

 

18TH REPORT ON G20 INVESTMENT MEASURES

09/11/2017 - Investment measures taken by G20 Members between mid-May and mid-October 2017 point almost exclusively towards greater openness for foreign investment and the easing of conditions for international capital flows, according to the 18th OECD-UNCTAD report on G20 investment measures. Growing attention is being paid to investment policies related to national security, a trend observed beyond G20 countries.

This report is jointly prepared by OECD and UNCTAD under their mandate to monitor and publicly report on the commitments of G20 countries not to introduce new barriers to trade and investment. It is part of a wider report on G20 trade and investment measures jointly published by the OECD, WTO and UNCTAD.

G20 trade and investment measures: OECD-WTO-UNCTAD reports

The leaders of the G20, which comprises the world’s largest economies, are firmly committed to open trade and investment and to resisting protectionism in all its forms. They have mandated WTO, OECD and UNCTAD – the leading international organisations in the area of international trade and investment policies – to monitor policy developments and report publicly on these commitments.
