Dear Members, 

Download the Effective
Investment Facilitation and
Sustainable Development flyer

As part of our ongoing effort to increase the capacity of members in FDI promotion, we have arranged for a prestigious training in partnership with International Labour Organisation (ILO). This training will take place in the historic city of Turin, Italy from May 4-6, 2016.

The training will explore the topic, Effective Investment Facilitation and Sustainable Development. About 30 experts from various investment promotion agencies will attend a fully structured 2.5 days transfer of knowledge and skills by dynamic speakers and practitioners of the investment industry. This course will help IPAs to strengthen their investment promotion, facilitation and expand after-care services and more broadly to enhance the development impacts of FDI flowing into their countries.

You can find details of the training in the flyer here.

We encourage both middle management, leadership of IPAs and government department officials to attend because it is important to equip both the designers of investment strategy and the implementers of promotional activities.

The sessions include an overview of FDI, employment and sustainable development; Investment promotion; After-care services; Multi-stakeholder dialogue; Empowered analytics and Regional investment.

We would request that you decide on the participating officials from your investment agency before March 15, 2016. We would encourage you to register early to secure participation.

Please sign up at:

Yours Sincerely,

WAIPA Permanent Secretariat
