Launching webinar of the new WAIPA-EIF-IsDB Project in Francophone LDCs
The World Association of Investment Promotion Agencies (WAIPA), the Enhanced Integrated Framework (EIF) and the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) have decided to join efforts through this new program to enhance investment promotion capacities and capabilities of francophone least developed countries (LDCs) in collaboration with OCO Global, which started its operations with a kick-off meeting virtually on 1 June 2022. This new program follows the success of a similar training program by EIF and WAIPA on capacity building for EIF Countries on investment promotion.
The project aims at improving institutional capacity and integration of trade and investment in LDCs to attract investment that contributes to sustainable development, particularly in SDG related sectors those LDC governments are paying particular attention to post pandemic.
The webinar aims to discuss on the project overall objectives, to present the timeline for the training workshops and roundtable discussions, since a lot needs to be done to make LDC economies successful competitors for FDI projects, particularly in the industrial and services sectors with more competition for less FDI projects. As governments and investors around the world are considering how to “build back better” in the post COVID-19, global economy and recent disruptions all over the world, it is vital to support LDCs to adapt quickly to this new investment climate.
