Private Sector Involvement In International Development Is Key

New Security Beat: A New Model of Development? The Role of Public-Private Partnerships in International Aid
“USAID funding is ‘far outstripped’ by private investment and business relationships in ‘nearly every country’ in which it works — and that’s a good thing, according to USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah [at a Wilson Center panel event]. …This ‘new model of development,’ as Shah put it, ‘requires us to do things differently — to be more nimble and more flexible, to reach out to private sector partners at home and abroad, and to bring more engagement to tackle the kinds of problems we want to solve.’…” (Achenbach, 3/19).
