If FDI is to contribute meaningfully to economic growth and sustainable development, existing flows must increase even more. For that to happen, international investment policies need better coordination, and we believe that the G-20 is the best forum to facilitate this process.Not only is the G20 an important venue for policy dialogue and coordination; it is also well suited to lead on efforts to address key international investment issues.For example, during China's G-20 presidency in 2016, the G-20 adopted the "Guiding Principles for Global Investment Policymaking".First, the G-20 should call on other international groupings to conduct analyses of their investment policies to ensure alignment with the bloc's nine principles.Second, the G-20 should encourage the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law and the International Center for Settlement of Investment Disputes to intensify efforts to reform their own dispute-settlement mechanisms.Lastly, the G-20 should support the World Trade Organization's discussions on investment facilitation.
