The UNCTAD 7th World Investment Forum

investment forum

The UNCTAD 7th World Investment Forum will focus on “Investing in sustainable recovery”, addressing today’s key challenge facing the global investment-development community.

The Forum will take place from 18 – 22 October 2021 and will specifically tackle the challenges and opportunities arising from the new industrial revolution, the sustainability imperative, the realignment of economic governance, and the efforts for greater economic resilience.

The deliberations will be informed by the World Investment Report 2020: International Production beyond the Pandemic and the World Investment Report 2021: Investing in Sustainable Recovery.

The 7th Forum will respond to the call by the UN General Assembly for concrete recommendations on how to overcome the impacts of the pandemic on promoting investments for sustainable development (Resolution A/Res/75/207 of 21 December 2020). The Forum’s outcome will feed back into the 76th United Nations General Assembly’s deliberations for global policy actions.
