Forge deeper economic links to boost investment in organization of Islamic cooperation region, monitor urges

Geneva, Switzerland, (17 November 2013) -

​Foreign direct investment (FDI) flows in the region of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) are concentrated only in a limited number of countries and have remained small relative to the size of the regional economy and compared with other developing regional groups, a special edition of the UNCTAD Global Investment Trends Monitor reports.  UNCTAD recommends a deepening and broadening of economic ties among the countries of the region.  It says such links would create a larger market, more specialization in products and activities, and a corresponding boost in FDI.
