The meeting will discuss policy perspectives of the issues under discussion in the Multi-Year Expert Group on Investment, Innovation and Entrepreneurship for Productive Capacity-Building and Sustainable Development.

The meeting will take stock of developments in bilateral, regional, and multilateral investment policy, with a specific focus on the reform efforts related to the regime of international investment agreements.

Further, the meeting will consider several lessons on science, technology and innovation policy identified by UNCTAD, particularly in the context of its policy advice and capacity-building work, and it will provide an update on entrepreneurship policies and their relation to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

This will enable a discussion on the UNCTAD Investment Policy Framework for Sustainable Development, the Entrepreneurship Policy Framework and the Science, Technology and Innovation Policy Framework.

The meeting will also serve as a preparatory step towards UNCTAD intergovernmental activities in 2016, in particular those of the Investment, Enterprise and Development Commission.

Experts nominated by member States are encouraged to submit by 2 March 2016 brief papers of approximately five pages as contributions to the work of the meeting.

Papers, which will draw on national and private sector experience, will be made available at the meeting in the form and language in which they are received.
