The Asia-Pacific FDI Forum provides a platform for discussion grounded in academic research. Discussions take place with the help of policy-oriented presentations which primarily relate to legal developments as also sovereign economics and politics of FDI.
To facilitate candid dialogue and to enhance the level of discussion, the meeting of the Asia-Pacific FDI Forum takes place under the Chatham House rule. This is a morally binding convention that allows all or part of a meeting to be held ‘off the record’ and provides that ‘information gleaned under the Chatham House Rule may be reported [if so agreed], but the identity or affiliations of speakers must not be disclosed’. Adoption of these rules ensures impartial, open and frequent quality discussions that can meaningfully contribute to existing discourse.
