USAID INVEST One Pager: About Us

Speeches Shim

On their own, international development agencies cannot meet all their goals for sustainable development. Despite the progress made, fulfilling the Journey to Self-Reliance and the goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development will require both a better approach to financing and a more effective use of finance. Private sector engagement will increasingly become an essential component of effective development that sets countries on the path to self-sufficiency and creates positive, long-lasting impact on communities. In 2018, USAID released both its Private Sector Engagement (PSE) Policy and its Acquisition and Assistance (A&A) Strategy. These policies create the framework for an institutional transformation whereby USAID will advance progress towards development goals through supporting and co-creating market-based solutions with the private sector, with an emphasis on working with new and underutilized partners.
