The Evolving Global Business Landscape: Implications for the International Investment Policy Regime
This paper presents a summary of the OECD’s recent and ongoing work on the evolving global business landscape. It begins with a brief survey of global investment trends and then examines three factors that could have implications for the international investment policy regime: changes in the ways companies organise their international operations; increases in government involvement in some segments of the global economy; and gaps in the governance of international investment flows.
The paper argues that the international investment landscape is undergoing major changes and is being shaped by new factors outside of the boundaries of traditional investment policies and international investment agreements.
