Issues discussed include: policies designed to attract foreign direct investment (FDI), including strategies based on tax and other incentives; the contribution of multinational enterprises towards promoting the developmental benefits of FDI; how FDI and portfolio investments can best complement each other in support of development; and effective ways of increasing the combined effects of FDI and official development aid in leveraging private investment for development projects in less developed countries.
