Resources for Promoting Private Sector Development

The three cities (Kumasi, Ghana; Mekelle, Ethiopia and Tabora, Tanzania) assisted under the Regional Partnership were a subset of the 11 cities in eight African countries designated as Millennium Cities. The Partnership worked with key public and private sector actors in each of these cities to identify promising opportunities for investment in productive enterprises. It also offered assistance in the form of capacity building of local staff and advice on appropriate business support services, and has focused on developing strategies and executing campaigns to target and win new investment in productive private sector enterprises.

In the course of this work, many tools have been developed to assist these and others cities in emerging markets with limited resources and experience in attracting inward investment, including the guides, tools and training materials below.
