Investment Promotion Programme

Cross-Government Prosperity Fund

Funded through the cross-government Prosperity Fund, the Investment Promotion Programme (IPP) is the Department for International Trade’s first Official Development Assistance (ODA) funded programme. IPP will support key developing countries to attract foreign direct investment, which will build stable economies and reduce their reliance on aid. Targeted interventions will lead to an improvement in the quality of services delivered by foreign investment promotion organisations, their promotion campaigns and the investment projects they support. Supporting investment promotion can fast-track economic transformation, helping to pave the way towards prosperity. Increasing the attractiveness and capability of developing countries for foreign direct investment (FDI) can help create jobs, and boost skills and productivity in the local economy of the focal countries.

Skills for Prosperity Programme

Cross-Government Prosperity Fund

The Global Skills programme will invest up to £75 million of Official Development Assistance (ODA) to support nine middle-income countries to address skills shortages in each country that are holding back growth and prosperity.

This in turn will offer a workforce with relevant skills for international, including UK, businesses that are looking to invest abroad. The programme is in alignment with DFID’s Economic Development Strategy (2017) and new Education Policy (2018), as well as with the UK’s commitment, included in the UK Aid Strategy, to continue to prioritise the needs of girls and women.

HM Treasury

UK contribution to support to the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), the international standard setter for tackling money laundering, terrorist financing and proliferation financing, to increase the number of staff within its Global Network Coordination Group (GNCG).

This additional engagement also enables and improves the effectiveness of other development interventions from other capacity building providers, including the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and others, as the regional institutional frameworks will be strengthened and knowledge of the FATF Standards will be increased.
