TitleInvestment Regimes in the Arab World: Issues and Policies
Imprint Geneva, United Nations. 2000
Descript iii, 225 p. : tables


Abstract: This publication derives from the Regional Workshop on Policies for Attracting Investment in the Arab World, held in Beirut from 28 to 30 September 1998. The workshop was undertaken in the context of the Regional UNDP Project on Arab States Economic Integration and Trade Programme, executed by UNCTAD. The publication includes four case studies on the legal and regulatory regimes in foreign direct investment (FDI) in Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, and Saudi Arabia. It also includes an overview of the regulatory and institutional framework for investment in the Arab World, as a whole. The publication notes that in the last twenty years, the Arab countries have, for the most part, been increasingly liberalising their investment regimes, while providing greater protection for FDI. However, the increasing liberalisation of FDI regulatory regimes, has not been matched by the corresponding increase in the absolute level of FDI inflows. The publication presents a comprehensive treatment of the subject countries' investment laws, including those related to the establishment, tax, labour, and dispute settlement. The individual country case presentations conclude with specific recommendations with a view to improve that country's FDI climate. [English/French]
