private sector development

DevPar has carried out assignments in private sector development that have been at the country and regional level as well as at the level of the individual firm. The settings have been countries where the private sector has emerged from a history of central economic management without the normal stimuli and support available in developed countries. We have described the work we have carried out in the development of the financial sector on another page of this web site. This experience is relevant to private sector development in providing one of the key inputs to development, namely financing.

Work in the private sector has included projects to stimulate development through the establishment of organisations, and preparing programs, that contribute to training entrepreneurs, providing businesses with support services, facilitating business development and export opportunities and influencing policy and legal change. Chambers of Commerce, Business Advisory Centres, Innovation Centres and other stimulating organizations have been helped and established and strengthened. Facilitating the setting up of international joint ventures and cooperative agreements for expanding product lines and increasing exports is another area of activity the Group has participated in.

Some Private Sector Programs have been focused on the provision of consulting services to individual firms. These have included diagnostic evaluations, business planning, product and service development, market expansion, introducing joint ventures and other technical services, including training.
