Annual Forum of Developing Country Investment Negotiators
The Annual Forum is a platform for discussing current trends and perspectives aimed at ensuring that the developmental goals and objectives of developing countries are promoted by international, regional and bilateral investment agreements.
In 2007 IISD convened the First Annual Forum of Developing Country Investment Negotiators, with the aim of creating an opportunity for developing countries to freely consider and develop their own negotiating priorities and goals in relation to international investment treaties.
This event responded to the growing demand from developing countries for a counterbalance to the OECD Investment Committee as a forum for developed country negotiators and policy-makers on investment and sought to institutionalize this process. Demand has grown each year for participation in and hosting the events.
