Private Sector Approaches to Sustainable, Long-Term Economic Development

Department of International Development public lecture

Date: Thursday 31 October 2013 
Time: 6.30-8pm 
Venue: Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House
Speaker: Dr Helene Gayle

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.
