British private investment in East Africa: report of a survey and a conference

Book/book chapter

In 1963-64 there was a drop in British investment in developing countries, especially Commonwealth countries. This reduction took place before the announcement to introduce a corporation tax.

ODI and the Dulverton Trust Research Office made a systematic inquiry in order to understand the nature of obstacles to investments in the developing world, and organised a conference afterwards. This paper analyses the report produced and also the issues discussed during the conference.
