2014 Hong Kong Building Public-Private Partnerships for Sustainable Development

April 14, 2014, Hong Kong – Building Public-Private Partnerships for Sustainable Development was the theme of the second high-level forum with a specific focus: Harnessing the transformative role of public-private partnerships in meeting sustainable development objectives.

The forum was a chance for world leaders to interact directly with business leaders to discuss partnerships and areas of collaboration. The unique expertise and strengths of the private sector was understood as being an important new ally to countries as they seek innovative and progressive ways to develop their economies and societies. A series of country presentations were complemented by business presentations, all with the purpose of fostering dialogue and agreement about the value of partnerships in sustainable development.
