In recent years, the increasing recognition of the developmental role of the private sector, the additional demands being made for support to the sector, the withdrawal of support to the Centre for the Development of Enterprise (CDE) and the need to ensure more coherence in its PSD programming has led the ACP to decide on the formulation of an overall PSD strategy for the Group.

We support the operationalization of the ACP Private Sector Development Strategy by providing expertise and logistical support for an in-depth consultation across the ACP regions and the organisation of a high level Symposium.

The Symposium website provides detailed information - including the draft Strategy.
