In December 2005, the International Development Committee agreed to undertake an inquiry on Private Sector Development (PSD). PSD touches on many aspects of what donors already do. The presumption behind the inquiry is not therefore that PSD is another sector for donors to engage in, but rather that PSD requires a changed perspective and practice in what donors (who may traditionally have little experience of business) are already doing. The inquiry will examine the coherence of DFID’s private sector development policy with DFID's work in other sectors.
This is the first evidence session of the PSD inquiry.
