Latest UNCTAD Investment Policy Monitor released
12 mars 2013
Investment Policy Monitor
A surge in new restrictions and regulations in national investment policy was observed in the four months to February 2013. At the international level, the trend to negotiate regional investment agreements gathered pace.

The period in review (November 2012-February 2013) was marked by a surge in new investment restrictions and regulations, with the Monitor registering that the share of such measures reached a new height. Nonetheless, investment liberalization and promotion remained the dominant trend in national investment policies. Numerous corporate tax changes, reductions and increases, were another prominent feature of the period under review.

At the international level, the move towards regional investment agreements gained further momentum, while the conclusion of new bilateral investment treaties continued to slacken, and stakeholders increasingly voice their views.
