Towards a New Generation of Foreign Investment Laws

MENA-OECD Good Practice

Under international public law, states are sovereign in determining the entry and stay of foreigners including foreign investors. In the global market place, however, countries compete to attract high value-added foreign investment as a key development tool for their economies. In order to make use of their sovereign rights effectively and concurrently attract much needed intra-regional and other foreign investment, a new generation of foreign investment laws are currently emerging in Middle East and North Africa (MENA) countries participating in the MENA-OECD Investment Programme.
