Public Private Partnership- Support to Domestic Private Sector- Suriname Business Forum (SBF)

The overall objective of this project is the development of a competitive DPS in Suriname that can contribute to the reduction of poverty within a framework of sustainable development, and facilitate the gradual integration of Suriname into the regional and world economy.
