Working Together to Unlock FDI

Partnership Event IMG Resized

With global foreign direct investment (FDI) flows expected to drop by 40 percent as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for better coordination among international financial institutions is now greater than ever.

MIGA hosted a global virtual event "Working Together to Unlock FDI" on December 8, 2020, and brought together multilateral development banks (MDBs), the private sector, and other stakeholders in the development community to discuss the opportunities and challenges of using political risk insurance to unlock private capital in developing countries.

The event also marked the launch of a new handbook Expanding Political Risk Insurance: A Partnership Approach to Grow Private Investment, which calls for deepened and systematic collaboration to mobilize private capital.
