Mapping of Investment Promotion Agencies: Middle East and North Africa
Mapping of Investment Promotion Agencies

This report provides an inventory of existing practices among Investment Promotion Agencies (IPAs) in the Middle East and North Africa region. It covers eight southern Mediterranean (MED) economies: Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, the Palestinian Authority, and Tunisia. The mapping exercise covers a wide range of areas pertaining to investment promotion and facilitation with a view to enhancing peer-learning among practitioners.

The objective of the mapping is to support heads of IPAs and investment policymakers in understanding options for effective investment promotion and facilitation strategies, based on comparative analysis with other agencies, and statistics on their own organisational setting. It aims to help them improve their policy advocacy role and make evidence-based decisions.
