Investment Incentives in Commonwealth Developed Countries and the WTO Investment Negotiations

This volume contains studies of investment incentives and subsidies available for small businesses, economically disadvantaged or remote areas and indigenous or minority groups in the four developed countries of the Commonwealth. They were commissioned to show the breadth and diversity of such incentives in the developed countries, and, by implication, the diversity of measures that are WTOcompatible, or at least do not infringe – or have not been charged with infringing – the rules on the investment agreed under the GATT 1994 or the GATS.
