The 5th international Workshop on Public-Private Dialogue was held on June 1-2-3, 2010, in Vienna, Austria. The 2010 workshop took stock of recent developments in PPD knowledge, discussed specific PPD cases, explored critical PPD related topics, and helped build capacity to effectively manage and monitor a PPD process. It was co-sponsored by the PPD practice group of the World Bank Group’s Investment Climate Department and the Department’s Vienna Office, which is dedicating some of its Investment Generation activities towards promoting PPD processes and advocacy mechanisms globally. Participating were 80 representatives of business forums, investors’ councils, and competitiveness partnerships from both the public and private sectors, as well as development partners, from 20 countries.
Specific themes that were explored during the 3-day PPD workshop: How do PPDs relate to clusters and competitiveness initiatives related to how do PPDs address gender issues, what are the steps to PPD transition strategies, how to manage communication around PPDs, and what are the most effective ways of measuring and monitoring progress..
