Advancing digital tools for investment promotion & facilitation in the MENA region
February 4, 2022
This policy brief accompanied discussions at the regional workshop “Integrating digital tools and solutions into MENA IPA activities”, organised on 14 October 2021 by the EU-OECD Programme on Investment in the Mediterranean. The workshop gathered IPA practitioners from MENA and peer countries (including Estonia, the United Kingdom and Dubai, UAE) to share specific digital practices and tools adopted, as well as challenges and opportunities faced by IPAs in digitalising activities.
This brief sets out points for discussion, drawing on the results of the OECD Survey on Investment Promotion & Digitalisation. The survey was completed online by IPAs from Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Palestine, Libya and Tunisia2 in summer 2021, as well as by IPAs from 36 OECD countries for comparative analysis.
