15 Mar ICA Knowledge Partner AIM 2017
On Saturday April 1st, ICA’s CEO, Dr. Douglas van den Berghe will co-host a workshop “How can FDI be used to develop location competitiveness?”. The workshop will provide investment promotion and economic development practitioners with a detailed understanding of how FDI can contribute to competitiveness with practical policy implications.
Douglas will also moderate the key Plenary session on Sunday April 2nd, focusing on the conference theme: “Global Corporations and Governments Drivers: Enablers of FDI and Competitiveness”. The session has renowned international speakers from the public and private sector giving their insights on competitiveness of countries and will explore how policy can be used to increase the contribution of FDI to the competitiveness of a national economy.
On the last day of the AIM 2017 conference Douglas will provide a keynote speech at the Investment Incentives Session moderated by Dr. Henry Loewendahl, CEO of WavTeq. This session will examine whether or not current incentives policies around the world are levers for competitiveness or whether they are more simply a tool to attract inward investors and compete with other locations.
