Mukhisa Kituyi (UNCTAD), Global Leaders Summit I, Part II - World Investment Forum 2018
23 Oct 2018 -  Dr. Mukhisa Kituyi, Secretary-General, UNCTAD
Investment in a new era of globalization
The Summit convenes Heads of State and Government and CEOs of global companies to share their vision for the future.
Their insights will set the tone for the rest of the Forum and inform its outcomes.
The first part of the Summit will consider the backlash against globalization stemming from its unequal developmental impact, the risks in protectionism in both trade and investment, and related challenges to multilateralism. The international community needs to ensure that this backlash does not impede the advancement of the SDGs.

Issues for the debate:
· How will globalization backlash affect international investment and its impact on development?
· What would be viable remedies in the investment policymaking area?
· How can more people benefit from globalization and how can the United Nations contribute?
