Caribbean Development Bank Private Sector Strategy 2004
Private Sector Development (PSD) is an integral component of the
Caribbean Development Bank’s (CDB’s) Strategic Plan and Poverty Reduction
Strategy. CDB's current strategy focuses mainly on indirect and, to a lesser extent,
direct lending, the latter being very small relative to the total loan portfolio. In
the context of the changes taking place in the external environment, there is need
to develop a more responsive and comprehensive approach to PSD in CDB’s Borrowing Member Countries (BMCs) to enable the private sector to benefit fully from the Bank’s comparative advantages as partner, client and resource in promoting regional development.
