The success of international production networks and the strengthened role of investment as a driver of trade and growth are 21st-century economic realities. However, societal unease with international investment is evident in political debates. Through this initiative, the business community comes together with government to design and advance forward-looking investment reforms. Efforts are aimed at maximizing the positive effects of investment on the economy, society and environment of host states, reforming international investment rules and procedures and providing investment facilitation frameworks. Business, government and civil society leaders find the project essential for staying up to date on the fast-evolving investment landscape. The project receives financial support from business and the Government of the Netherlands.
