South-South - ITC participation at BAPA+40, methodology and resource mobilization
The objective of the project is to demonstrate the transformative nature of South-South and triangular trade and investment. The dissemination of forthcoming best practices will establish ITC-s position in the South-South domain. Key Initiatives will include the launch of a research publication at the BAPA+40 (Buenos Aires Plan of Action) conference; Case Studies on de-risking South-South investments; a methodology on South-South trade and investment promotion; and resource mobilization for South-South and triangular cooperation trade and investment projects. The best practice publications and events will guide development agencies on factors that determine investment in a South-South context; and inform the design of future South-South trade and investment projects. Key partners include the Department for International Development (DFID) and the New Delhi-based Research and Information System for Developing Countries (RIS), an agency sponsored by India's Ministry of External Affairs.
