The Role of Public Policy in Private Sector Development

With public resources limited and constrained by public debt policies, public private partnerships (PPPs) can provide an excellent instrument to meet investment needs through private funding. Although private financing comes at a cost, PPPs can enable goverments to establishing infrastructure and services delivery ambitions in an effective and efficient manner, while spreading their spending over longer periods

Since PPPs are complex, it is important for all stakeholders, both public and private to acquire skills that will enable them to build credible structures that ensure projects are environmentally responsive, socially sensitive, economically viable as well as politically feasible

Strathmore Business School’s Centre for Public Policy and Competitiveness has partnered with the Leadership Academy for Development, an affiliate of Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies of Stanford University and the Johns Hopkins University, School of Advanced and International Studies (SAIS) to offer an exciting course that will address some of the challenges faced by public sector leaders as they foster economic growth in politically charged environments.


The program is a 4-day, intensive programme for a small number of high level government officials and business leades from Eastern Africa. The curriculum is designed to reinforce and illustrate critical hypotheses about the role of public policy in private sector develoment.
