FDI Pillar Session 2 - Protectionism & Trade Wars: The Ripple effect
A rise in protectionism is contributing to economic uncertainty and a decline in global FDI. The increase in protectionist policies is forcing corporate investors to revisit their global footprints and supply chains, with investment decisions either being put on hold or reoriented towards new locations. In this session we will review the impact of protectionism and trade wars on FDI, including the changing nature of corporate investment decisions and the responses of governments and investment promotion agencies.
