The general objective of the TC is to facilitate investments and encourage exports of knowledge-intensive goods and services from Uruguay. The specific objective is to develop sector strategies, map the investment and talent ecosystem, structure instruments to promote investment and employment, and a comprehensive plan to attract international talent with a territorial focus, including conducting business matchmakings. This will support initiatives that complement the portfolio in design and execution of the Trade and Investment Division (INT / TIN) in Uruguay.
The reconfiguration of international economic relations and discriminatory policy interventions, both in relation to trade and in relation to Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), especially those related to location, open up opportunities for Uruguay to take better advantage of the reconfiguration of global value chains.
Uruguay faces the challenge of promoting an economic reactivation and generating employment. To do this, it needs to increase the levels of investment and exports to boost sustainable economic growth, as well as improve its productivity, allowing economies to move towards the production and export of more complex products, with technological content and more sophisticated skills.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IADB
The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IIC is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
