11/06/2019 10:30 11/06/2019 12:00 Challenges in the Design and Implementation of Policies to Promote Local Content and Economic Development This session examines the importance of designing realistic local content or in-country value policies and implementation strategies. Panellists will also discuss the dilemmas which may arise during the implementation of ill-conceived policies. Illustrative questions to be debated include:
  • What is the definition of “local” content and how is it changing? Are some definitions of local “better” than others?
  • What does “good” look like in terms of local content policies and strategies?
  • What are the specific distortions (economic, governance, ethics and compliance) caused by poorly designed LC requirements - what are the mitigation measures?
  • Are there always trade-offs between local content and cost management?
  • How can we measure the impact of local content beyond just hitting targets?
  • Can the energy sector be a “catalyst” for growth?
