Research shows that investment promotion
agencies (IPAs) may be the best public institutions to meet
government objectives for attracting, establishing,
retaining, expanding, and linking productive private
investment. As part of this, IPAs need to provide relevant,
high-quality services to investors at different stages of
the investment life cycle. Informed by its research and
experience in global operations, the World Bank Group
introduces the Comprehensive Investor Services Framework
(CISF), a catalog of specific services to meet investor
needs. IPAs can use this investor-centric framework to
design service offerings in line with their strategic focus
and promotion capacity.
