Video: The European Commission, CSOs and the private sector – Talking the same language?

With the continually growing recognition by donors of the importance of the private sector in development, the European Commission is preparing a communication on the subject, due out in April this year. ECDPM was asked to moderate a consultation with CSOs and the private sector this week to get views on what the communication should contain. In his blog, Bruce Byiers points out that while the language used by the two groups is increasingly similar, this can hide key differences in perspective that are important to bring out to better inform the communication.
