The Chamber is committed to improving private sector development around the world through a series of initiatives. It has partnered with the World Bank Group on the launch of the Benchmarking Public Procurement reports. The 2016 and 2017 reports explore impediments for successful cooperation between private businesses and the government, and ways to improve the regulatory environment for public procurement around the world.
The Chamber has also joined the global SME Finance Forum, an initiative started by the G20 countries and managed by the International Finance Corporation (IFC). The forum, part of the G20’s Global Partnership for Financial Inclusion, is an opportunity for experts from financial institutions, financial technology companies, and development finance institutions to share their insights on innovative ways to improve small business finance.
