The Case for Transparency and Accountability
Nations that establish fairness, transparency and accountability initiatives and a “transparency culture” encourage international investment while assuring citizens of fair value for their resources and the protection of their environment. Global companies know that the risks of their potential investments are much lower when fairness, transparency and accountability are well established. Companies that know that they will be treated fairly in a competitive environment and will be able to operate according to consistent, fair practices are more likely to consider investments, especially in riskier conflict and post-conflict countries.

The Case for Process Efficiency
Global companies often find laws, regulations, and business practices confusing, cumbersome and not aligned with international standards. Compounded by a culture of corruption, the simplest of tasks become time consuming and costly. Nations that create a more favorable climate for global businesses while preserving and protecting their resources and norms are more likely to encourage quality investment.
