The Monterrey Consensus is an historic opportunity that can yield concrete benefits for countries and their citizens as well as the private sector, but only if concrete actions are taken to implement the agreed upon principles. Governments worldwide have recognized the imperative of mobilizing private sector investment and expertise for overall development and global prosperity, and to this end that specific policy actions are needed to improve business environments and mobilize private investment. The Global Clearinghouse aims at creating networks and activities that enable the public and private sector to work together in developing the practical action steps and policies to realize these critical objectives and “win-win” partnerships.
