As Bangladesh’s representative to the Business Leaders Caucus, Saber Hossain will work to develop policy guidelines on how to best use public resources to engage the private sector in achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Member of parliament, Saber Hossain Chowdhury, managing director of Karnaphuli Limited and president of Geneva based Inter-Parliamentary Union, has been appointed to the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation’s (GPEDC) Business Leaders Caucus.

As Bangladesh’s representative to the Business Leaders Caucus, Saber Hossain will work to develop policy guidelines on how to best use public resources to engage the private sector in achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

However, the GPEDC is a multi-stakeholder platform to advance the effectiveness of development efforts by all actors, to deliver results that are long-lasting and contribute to the achievement of the SDGs.

Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the UN Development Programme (UNDP) jointly chair the GPEDC.

Saber Hossain Chowdhury told the Dhaka Tribune: “There is great potential and scope in Bangladesh for engaging the private sector in realizing Agenda 2030, and align its work with goals and targets of the SDGs. 

“It will be good for business as well as development- a win-win for all concerned and Bangladesh can be a leader in this initiative,” he also said.

Saber Hossain further added that the Business Leaders Caucus met virtually for the first time on September 20 and will be meeting again in Berlin (hosted by German Foreign Ministry) next month and again in Paris early next year.

The Caucus "Global Partnership" is an advisory group of high-calibre business leaders from around the world that provides strategic advice and guidance to shape global policy and private sector approaches to development through promotion of shared value and to sustain political momentum for effective development cooperation.

These principles were agreed in 2011 by more than 160 countries and 50 high-level organizations in the Busan Partnership Agreement, the outcome of the Fourth High-Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Busan in South Korea.

Saber Hossain will be representing Bangladesh among 12 members of the Business Leaders Caucus.
