The digital economy, multinational enterprises and international investment policy

OECD

Published, 24 April 2018

The OECD publishes a report about the implications of the increased use of digital technologies on international investment activities. Because digital technologies are being quickly adapted by a number of previously non-digital sectors, policy challenges facing specific technologies will multiply not just across those sectors but also across international trading and investment.

The report highlights the likely changes to business models, national security concerns, data ownership, privacy considerations, productivity, and digital infrastructure that will have an effect on how financial investments are made and structured in the future.
