Shaping foreign direct investment
On 2nd March 2016, Professor of International Economic Law, Professor David Collins, will launch his new book, Performance Requirements and Investment Incentives under International Economic Law, at Eversheds LLP, 1 Wood Street, London EC2V 7WS.
The book discusses the legal implications of performance requirements
and investment incentives – increasingly popular but controversial tools used
by governments around the world to shape foreign direct investment. Limited
attempts have been made by the World Trade Organization (WTO) and through international
investment treaties to regulate such requirements and incentives.
The book launch will be chaired by Dr Stuart Dutson, a Partner at Eversheds and specialist in international arbitration.

The World Trade Organization (WTO) is the only global international organization dealing with the rules of trade between nations. At its heart are the WTO agreements, negotiated and signed by the bulk of the world’s trading nations and ratified in their parliaments. The goal is to help producers of goods and services, exporters, and importers conduct their business.
