    Why OECD Work on Investment Policy Matters

    The OECD shapes policies that encourage investment, protect investors, and create a more favorable environment for businesses to thrive and contribute to economic growth and development. Through its groundbreaking research and publications as well as various instruments, including the OECD Declaration on International Investment and Multinational Enterprises, the OECD Policy Framework for Investment and the OECD Guidelines for Investment Policies relating to National Security, the OECD works to enhance the contribution of international investment to growth and sustainable development.

    How Business Engages with the OECD on Investment Policy

    Our Investment Committee acts as the private sector focal point for OECD activities related to international investment. We advocate for sound and stable investment conditions, open markets and conducive business environments. Based on our members’ expertise, we inform the OECD about specific problems and barriers foreign investors face and contribute to the formulation of OECD policies and guidance documents. Our Investment Committee meets twice per year convenes additional thematic ad-hoc sessions and organizes policy events in partnership with the OECD.
