Transnational corporations in extractive industries will be the topic of the 2007 World Investment Report, produced by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).
The role of transnational corporations (TNCs) in extractive industries is attracting renewed attention, partly as a result of rising commodity prices and increased demand from emerging economies.
This year, the World Investment Reportexamines TNCs activities in extractive industries and their development implications, and will explore policy options aimed at ensuring tangible and long-term gains for growth and development in developing countries. As usual, the first part of the Report will review recent developments in global and regional FDI trends.
