This report presents the results of a survey that queried foreign investors active in the Latin America and Caribbean region on the importance they attach to a key set of investment facilitation measures. It is based on 67 responses. The results of the investor survey are put into perspective by highlighting consistencies and gaps in relation to the current state of the WTO Investment Facilitation for Development (IFD) negotiations and the actual level of adoption of investment facilitation measures at the national level.
The survey yielded important insights that may contribute to the ongoing negotiations on an IFD Agreement at the WTO, as well as to other negotiations of international investment agreements that address issues of investment facilitation. It should also be of interest to investment promotion agencies (IPAs) and other institutions whose mandate includes the facilitation of foreign direct investment (FDI).
