InvesTT Limited in conjunction with the Arthur Lok Jack Graduate School of Business will on Tuesday launch the World Investment Report 2014 (WIR) prepared by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (Unctad). The 23rd in its series, this year's WIR is subtitled Investing in the Sustainable Development Goals: An Action Plan.
First published in 1991, the WIR has been published annually by Unctad and presents data on and existing trends in global foreign direct investment (FDI) and is an influential resource of economic intelligence to global policy makers. This year's report comes at a critical time to provide insight into the development of Sustainable Development Goals for international development beyond 2015.
Each year the WIR is launched simultaneously via press conferences at strategic locations around the world. InvesTT, the country's investment promotion agency charged with attracting, facilitating and retaining FDI into T&T, has been invited for the third consecutive year by Unctad to host the launch of the WIR.
