There is growing confidence in the power of Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) to narrow the development gap and unleash the economic potential of poor communities. New concepts of development highlight the need to catalyze private investment in developing countries and illustrate that corporate growth strategies can address development goals and improve the "bottom line." In this session focused on identifying strategies to promote effective PPPs, key representatives from the public, private, and NGO sectors will seek answers to the following questions: How can governments further reduce bureaucracy, counteract corruption, and create more stable business environments to stimulate entrepreneurship and growth? How can aid monies be used more strategically to encourage private investment? How can business be encouraged to make genuine commitments to sustainable development while adhering to high standards of governance, accountability and transparency? What business models have actually worked at local and national levels, and how could they be transferred effectively elsewhere? How can distrust between the sectors be overcome in the greater interest of achieving competitive and self-sustainable economies in developing countries?

The fee for this session is 3,000 EURO. The fee covers the cost of the program, accommodations, and meals.
