Partnership Platform

  • The Partnership Platform will act as a forum for evidence-based policy recommendations and as a vehicle for mobilizing well informed public-private sector discussions in the countries in which SITA will provide trade-related technical assistance.

    The Partnership Platform provides a setting in which SITA’s stakeholders come together to solve problems, with each side learning about the needs, constraints and obstacles that need to be addressed to achieve export competitiveness. The Partnership Platform will:

    • ƒƒ Contribute to the development of policy options and solutions aimed at improving business and investment climate impediments to trade and investment flows between the five African countries and India; and
    • ƒƒ Inform the design of SITA by serving as a forum for interaction and discussion between stakeholders on project approach and intervention logic.

    The Platform’s approach will focus on addressing sector-specific and cross-cutting issues through consensus building among stakeholders to bring about reform along value chains and enhance sector competitiveness. 

    Building partnerships

    Partnerships and knowledge exchanges between stakeholders will be promoted through the active participation of beneficiaries throughout the project’s life cycle.
