In March 2002, world leaders met in Monterrey, Mexico, for a summit on poverty, sponsored by the United Nations, with a goal to eradicate poverty, achieve sustained economic growth and promote sustainable development as they worked to advance to a fully inclusive and equitable global economic system.

BCLC’s Forum: Expanding on the Monterrey Consensus will present ways in which the private sector can work towards those goals by combining strategies for social development with economic development.

This forum is for business leaders and their partners who are interested in networking, sharing information, learning about new policies, procedures, tools and techniques and advancing the Global Development agenda.

The forum will discuss:

  • Corporate responses to global development issues
  • The implications of the Monterrey Consensus for business in emerging markets
  • New tactics for supporting public-private partnerships in emerging markets and less developed countries
