The Knowledge to Act


1st Annual Forum of Developing Country Investment Negotiators

Share This

The Forum was held October 1–2, 2007, in Singapore, co-hosted by the International Institute for Sustainable Development and the Centre on Asia and Globalisation, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore.

It brought together over 30 negotiators from 25 developing countries for two days of intensive sessions. The agenda, formulated by a steering committee of negotiators, gave ample opportunity for participants to share their experiences and learn both from fellow negotiators as well as from experienced arbitrators, distinguished academics and other expert presenters.

There was overwhelming consensus at the close of the meeting on the value of the event, and the need for more such events, as well as strong offers of support for organizing any subsequent meetings. IISD is in the process of raising the funds for a second forum, as well as exploring other recommendations made by the participants for serving the community of developing country investment negotiators.
