Developing countries need an enabling environment for the private sector to create economic growth and effective poverty alleviation. Thus, it is a strategic priority in Danish development cooperation to contribute to the creation of a strong private sector. For Danida, it is important that Danish business participates actively in this endeavor. The Danida Business Instruments consist of Danida Business Finance and Danida Business Partnerships. You can find more information about the two programmes on their respective websites in the menu to the left.
