Cross-government Prosperity Fund
Global Business Environment Programme
IATI Identifier: GB-GOV-50-PF-08-GBE
This programme aims to improve the business environment in middle-income economies by stimulating growth and creating jobs, helping to lift people out of poverty. It is worth £30 million over 4 years, and aims to support reforms that improve the business environment in a range of middle-income countries. It also aims to unlock inclusive growth for women, who can be disproportionately affected by a poor business environment. The programme will provide technical assistance to national governments and sub-national authorities to support their reform programmes by improving capacity in areas like investment promotion and fostering competition. Middle income countries are widely recognised as engines of global growth. However weak institutions and inadequate regulations often constrain growth and exacerbate challenges such as low productivity levels. Global growth improves opportunities for international business, including UK companies, to contribute to and benefit from economic growth in other countries.
