    • Development Business (DB) has launched a strategic alliance with the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) with the goal of assisting small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the global procurement marketplace. 

      For nearly 100 years the ICC has been the umbrella organization for many SMEs, mobilising them in a collaborative manner and guiding them to manage the disruptions in the global economy. 

      With the debates on the post 2015 agenda gaining momentum and the primacy of SMEs in development achieving greater traction, this partnership will accelerate progress towards a better informed private sector which is well prepared to bid for public sector procurement. 


    • UN Development Business (DB)  has launched its collaboration with the Commonwealth Businesswomen's Network (CBW) , which as the lead organisation for women in business in the Commonwealth works with governments through the Commonwealth Secretariat and the private sector through the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council and which is mandated to drive women's economic empowerment across 53 member nations. This comes at a critical juncture when the success of the MDGs is being assessed,  particularly, but not exclusively MDG number 3 which seeks to promote gender equality. At the same time it will further a UN priority of assisting SMEs in gaining a stronger foothold in the global procurement marketplace.  DB and the CBW are joining forces to expand its networks with the aim of making tangible/measurable inroads in 2015 and beyond.

      Development Business is pleased to announce its partnership with WEConnect International,  a corporate based non-governmental organization which identifies, educates, registers, and certifies women's business enterprises based outside of the U.S. that are at least 51% owned, managed, and controlled by one or more women, and then connects them with multinational corporate buyers.  This collaboration will serve a dual  purpose - Support Millennium Development Goal # 3 which  aims to PROMOTE GENDER EQUALITY AND EMPOWER WOMEN and  to assist in furthering  a UN priority of assisting  SMEs in the global procurement market.
