Private sector is growing in developing countries. More and more international companies are turning towards the developing world and the flow of private capital has increased during the past 10 years. Development cooperation agencies like Sida is seeking cooperation with the private sector to leverage the financial support from development assistance with private capital and to make business actors contribute to the goals of development cooperation. This presentation will describe the different instruments Sida uses for cooperation with the private sector and give some examples of ongoing projects. It will also describe how Sida supports capacity development within ICT4D.
