Reviews of Investment Climate and Market Structure

The Energy Charter's Investment Group regularly reviews progress made in member countries towards improvement of the investment climate and restructuring of domestic energy markets. Particular attention is paid to the reduction of remaining country-specific exceptions to the principle of non-discriminatory treatment of foreign investors when making an investment. The reports are discussed in the Investment Group which may suggest recommendations to the examined country concerning the further improvement of the investment conditions, including the issues of market restructuring and privatisation. The Investment Group submits the draft recommendations to the Charter Conference for final adoption.

Country Reviews

In 2004, the Energy Charter Secretariat completed the first in a new series of 'in-depth' studies of its member countries. These 'in-depth' reviews are drafted by investment experts from the Secretariat, in close cooperation with the member country concerned.
