Business and the Millennium Development Goals

This page in:

Last week the WBCSD released Business for Development: Business Solutions in Support of the Millennium Development Goals. A very manageable summary of the main issues and debates. Among their main conclusions:

We have identified three broad priorities: effective legal and regulatory frameworks, support for the small and medium-sized enterprises and investments in core infrastructure… the business community sees these three areas as the foundations of a thriving economy.

Business cannot create the right investment climate. It is for policy makers to follow through their commitments with consistent and effective action. This will require steady, long-term commitment, action and coherent strategies that intimately involve the private sector.
