G20/OECD High-level Roundtable for Long-term Investment
The OECD will organise this event under the Chinese G20 presidency, following the past Roundtables organised under the Russian, Australian and Turkish G20 presidencies in 2013, 2014 and 2015 respectively.
This event will be held back to back with the G20 Investment and Infrastructure Working Group meetings and related events from 25-28 April 2016.
The Roundtable was organised under the aegis of the G20 Chinese Presidency and the OECD, and co-hosted by the Singapore Ministry of Finance. Discussions focussed on:
- Mobilisng Private Capital for Infrastructure Financing: Framework conditions, capital markets development and the role of institutional investors
- Diversifying sources of finance: Focus on equity investment in infrastructure finance in developed and emerging markets
- Engaging institutional investors: Building infrastructure as an asset class
Participants included high-level representatives of pension funds, insurance companies and sovereign wealth funds as well as high-level officials and experts from ministries of finance, central banks and international organisations. The Roundtable was organised back to back with the meetings of the G20/OECD Task Force on Institutional Investors and Long-term Financing and the G20 Investment and Infrastructure Working Group (IIWG) as well as other related events co-organised with the Global Infrastructure Hub and the World Bank.
This event built on the 2014 G20/OECD High-Level Roundtable, and 2015 G20/OECD High-level Roundtable, which all took place within the framework of the OECD project on Institutional Investors and Long-Term Investment. Launched in 2012, this project promotes long-term investment, including in real assets such as infrastructure, addressing both potential regulatory and market failures.
