The recent joint WAIPA-World Bank Global Survey on the State of Investment Promotion Agencies shows that the sustainable development goals (SDGs) and their promotion are increasingly important for IPAs. The SDGs as well as the green shift offer tremendous chances for countries and regions and IPAs play a critical role in advising governments on upcoming prospects and opportunities. As such also impact investment, i.e., investments apart from a financial return, predominantly aim for a measurable social and environmental impact are becoming increasingly important in the portfolio of IPAs. Hence, this panel will explore how IPAs can create and measure the sustainable and impact investments. Moreover, it will aim to look at the positive and negative impact of FDI, its reasons and how to deal with it. The panel will discuss on what IPAs can do to help investors and why the sustainability factor will become even more important in the near future.
