UNCTAD investment policy monitor

Published 27 March 2018 | 1 minute read

UNCTAD’s Investment Policy Monitor provides the international investment community with country-specific, up-to-date information about the latest developments in foreign investment policies, both at the national and international levels.

The March 2018 version discusses the noteworthy investment policy measures taken by nations during the following time period: November 2017 – February 2018. The majority of new investment policy measures were geared towards creating more favourable investment conditions, the report states. However, the overall share of more restrictive or regulatory investment policy measures increased 29 percent during the reporting period, the highest ratio since 2010.
