The Roundtable,  co-organized by the International Trade Centre (ITC), the German Development Institute/Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE), ESCAP and the World Economic Forum (WEF), will offer a platform for a strategic exchange among government officials on the World Trade Organisation (WTO) negotiations on an Investment Facilitation for Development (IFD) Agreement, launched in September 2020 after over two years of preparatory discussions. High-level policy makers, government officials, private sector representatives, and eminent academic scholars will participate in the Roundtable, to be updated on the negotiations and to raise awareness on their progress and reflect on how countries may best make use of the IFD Agreement to enhance their business climate, attract higher value-added investment and boost economic growth, digital economy innovations and sustainable development.
