Nine out of ten jobs in the developing world are now in the private sector, and more than 85 percent of US engagement with developing countries comes through the private sector. Going forward, multi-stakeholder partnerships offer great potential to encourage global development, reduce poverty and inequality, and bring prosperity to millions.
How can policymakers continue to engage with the private sector to encourage much-needed development? How can organizations such as USAID, working with the Global Development Alliance, help spur innovation in this area?
Join us for a panel discussion exploring these issues, and hear insights from experts who will examine how innovative private sector engagement can help make a tangible difference in the lives of the world’s most vulnerable.
Presented by the Keough School of Global Affairs, its Pulte Institute for Global Development and McKenna Center for Human Development and Global Business, and by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS).
