5th Annual Forum of Developing Country Investment Negotiators
The Fifth Annual Forum of Developing Country Investment Negotiators was held in Kampala, Uganda, from October 17–19, 2011.
It was co-organized by the Government of Uganda, the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) and the South Centre. This year’s Forum was attended by 79 participants from 40 countries from Asia, Africa and Latin America, as well as international organizations, including the Commonwealth Secretariat, the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat and the Pan-African Parliament.
The Forum builds upon the successes of the four previous forums held in Singapore (2007), Morocco (2008), Ecuador (2009) and India (2010). This year the Forum was aimed at encouraging developing country investment negotiators to explore choices for a better future in relation to foreign investment and sustainable development.
