An Expert Meeting on International Investment in Agriculture was held on 30-31 July 2009 at FAO headquarters in Rome. Twenty experts actively interested in the recent trends in foreign investment in developing country agriculture, met informally to exchange information and review what is known and what is not known about recent investments, and to identify key issues and explore policy and legislation questions. The topics discussed included a review of recent trends in international investment, the record on FDI in developing country agriculture, evidence on recent investments, the “land grab” and its implications, alternative business models for investments, bridging the investment gap – investment needs and sources of capital, policy implications and the case for an international code of conduct.
