Investments between Emerging Markets

Investments between Emerging Markets


Traditionally, cross-border capital tended to flow from developed to developing countries, while today emerging economies are becoming both the source and destination of cross-border flows. The tri-party relationships between the recipient countries, traditional investors/donors and the new emerging market investors have become dynamic and sensitive.

YGL Response

This task force seeks to understand the key issues related to investments between emerging economies and promote sustainable capital flows from economic, financial, social and environment perspectives. The task force covers a wide range of activities carried out by YGL members, including promoting best practice on sustainability in specific investment transactions, organizing programmes and events to deepen understanding among the three parties and developing thought leadership analysis on this topic.
