Private Sector Development Outreach Department (PSDO)

The objective of the PSDO Department is to promote effective dialogue between the MoCI and other PSD stakeholders and seek to develop a shared stakeholder vision on the role of government in a free market economy. Using communication channels effectively and adopting a systematic approach to dialogue, the department will:

  • Help develop a wider public understanding of the role of the private sector and the benefits that can flow from economic growth based on private sector-led development.
  • Provide the Ministry with a better understanding of the views and priorities of the private sector.
  • Disseminate information on PSD policy and reform programmes.
  • Coordinate with other Ministries that include a PSD-related mandate, to ensure effective implementation of PSD initiatives.
