Working Together
to Unlock FDI 

December 8th, 2020

9:00-10:00am ET

 

With global Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) flows dropping by up to 40 percent as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for enhanced coordination among international financial institutions is now greater than ever.  MIGA will host a public event to mark the launch of a new handbook titled ‘Expanding Political Risk Insurance: A Partnership Approach to Grow Private Investment,’ which calls for deepened and systematic collaboration across the development community to advance the role of political risk insurance in unlocking private capital.

The event will showcase principles for collaboration and best practices where coordination has delivered impact on the ground. Join us for a spirited conversation on how we can work together to unlock FDI to developing countries.
