Pieter Stek – Member of the Commission on Coherence of the International Economic and Financial Architecture, at the Advisory Council on International Affairs, The Hague


We asked Pieter, what are the prospects for cross-border capital flows to the poorest and most vulnerable countries? Pieter identifies factors that need to be addressed within the poorest and most vulnerable countries to attract capital flows, including civil strife, missing structures to attract external finance, weak institutions and weak policies. If countries work on these elements (including drawing on assistance from multilateral institutions) their prospects will improve.
