Successful Models for Private Sector-Led Economic Growth in Africa

June 14, 2018 • 9:00 – 10:30 am EDT

Please join us on June 14th for a discussion of successful models for private sector-led economic growth in Africa. 

The panel session will build off recent work at CSIS with a closer look at how market-based approaches to development can help drive sustainable change and economic opportunity in Africa. The report, “Pioneering New Operating Models and Measurement Techniques for Private Sector-Led Development: Assessing Impact in Nigeria’s Niger Delta”, from the Initiative for Global Development (IGD), will frame the conversation. What are the successful models of private sector-led economic growth in Africa and how do they translate to other regions? What can U.S. private sector actors learn from these models?

Please join us at CSIS (1616 Rhode Island Avenue NW, Washington, D.C. 20036) for this important discussion.

This event is organized in collaboration with the Initiative for Global Development (IGD). IGD is a Washington, DC-based nonprofit organization that engages and harnesses the power of the private sector to advance sustainable development and inclusive growth in Africa through business investment. This event is part of the "Chevron Forum for Development" series and made possible with general support from Chevron.
