The purpose of this book is to provide policy insights to decision-makers, academics and researchers on investment flows and patterns in Southeast Europe. The report explores some of the determinants of private investment, such as: the financing sources for investment, the contribution of FDI and the role of public investment. It finds that investment rates in Southeast Europe are substantially lower than among the EU-8 and the fast growing East Asian economies, which could explain partly the slower economic growth in Southeast Europe.

The peer review mechanism has been a tried and tested instrument for OECD member states to work together successfully over the past decades. This tool could benefit the Southeast Asian region as it helps identify good practices, establish standards and principles and ultimately improve the performance of participating economies.

Southeast Asia deserves more sustained attention from American policymakers than it has received in the recent past. This Independent Task Force Report argues that Southeast Asia has a long history of important security and economic ties to the United States and is of strategic interest. Yet, the United States has benignly neglected the area and its needs and growth potential for almost two decades. With the economic crisis in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations in the late 1990s, the reestablishment of U.S. diplomatic ties to Vietnam, and the recent ethnic strife and devolution in Indo
