The Pacific Private Sector Development Initiative in 2011: focus, issues, and outcomes.
Asian Development Bank | June 2012
This is the fifth report on the progress of the Pacific Private Sector Development Initiative (PSDI), a regional technical assistance facility jointly financed by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID).1 PSDI supports raising inclusive growth among ADB’s Pacific developing member countries (DMCs) in several ways. Its focus on promoting investment and entrepreneurship, by assisting countries to improve their business environments, raises the long-run potential growth rate. Through its reforms directed at improving access to finance, it increases opportunities for a broad section of the population of Pacific DMCs and helps to spread the benefits of growth. Its efforts to reform stateowned enterprises provide improved delivery of basic services to more people, including those in rural areas. The overall impact of PSDI is to reduce poverty in the region.
