About the product

The Series provides practical advice and case studies of best policy practice for attracting and benefiting from foreign direct investment (FDI), in line with national development strategies. It draws on the experiences gained in United Nations Conference’s on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) capacity- and institution-building work in developing countries and countries with economies in transition. The Investment Advisory consists of Series A and Series B. This Series B examines how policy choices affect relative outcomes in achieving reliable power supply at competitive economic cost. It studies electricity infrastructure in Chile and New Zealand and explores “best practices” to create an institutional environment conducive to maximizing development benefits from increased foreign investment.
