Private Sector Approaches to Sustainable, Long-Term Economic Development
Speaker(s): Dr Helene Gayle
Recorded on 31 October 2013 in Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House.
New approaches to address extreme poverty are emerging that involve greater private sector engagement. Traditional poverty-fighting efforts are being combined with new, innovative business models aiming for social impact—providing long-term economic growth as well as greater social empowerment. Dr Gayle will discuss the variety of ways in which an NGO can engage with a broader range of partners toward improving the lives of poor people around the world.
Helene D Gayle is president and CEO of CARE USA, a leading international humanitarian organisation.
