Policy dialogue: International investment and the transmission of gender policies and practices

ITC SheTrades, in collaboration with UNCTAD, is organizing a series of onlline policy dialogues on the AfCFTA.

The series kicks off with a policy dialogue on “International Investment and the Transmission of Gender Policies and Practices”. During this session, we will discuss state-of-the-art research and policy options on the role of foreign investment and multinational enterprises (MNEs) in promoting inclusive development.

Key issues discussed include:

  • What MNEs strategies can influence inclusive development in host countries?
  • What are the drivers/challenges faced by MNEs when devising strategies for inclusive development?
  • What role do other stakeholders (public and private) play in MNEs strategies for gender equality?
  • What is the role of investment facilitation?
  • How can regional integration help?
