Private Sector Development in Developing Countries: What Works?

 Umwaka Mushya Muhire! (Happy New Year!)

After recent travel and varied conversations, I am convinced that there are many good (and controversial) ideas about the best form of private sector development. I would like to take this opportunity to put the question to YOU:

“What seems to work (and what does not) among economic development initiatives in developing countries?”

I will compile your responses (including pitfalls to avoid and best practices to consider) and add some ofKarisimbi Partners’ own insights in an effort to see if anything resembling a consensus can be found for application in places like Rwanda. Please lend us your ideas and opinions on this important topic!

Onward and Upward,

-Carter
