Private companies have always had a tremendous impact on a developing country’s economy. Today, companies implement bottom-line decisions that have a positive impact on development through their business practices, investments, and supply chains. Specifically, supply chains offer businesses operating in the developing world the opportunity to use their need for goods and services to expand the quantity and quality of local small- and medium-sized enterprises that facilitate lasting economic growth.
Please join us to mark the release of a new CSIS report, Maximizing Development of Local Content across Industry Sectors in Emerging Markets, as panelists from both the U.S. government and corporations engage in a discussion on how business can build economies and develop local content strategies.
