Mission & Objectives

The Private Sector Development Center in Iraq (PSDC) is a registered local and independent civil society organization established in 2012. As a joint private sector body, the PSDC is focused on economic reform in Iraq, its mission is:
" Promoting an inclusive and competitive Iraqi private sector through trust building, public-private dialogue, advocacy for economic reform and market-orientated activities"
The aim of the mission has three different dimensions:
  1. The need to establish trust in a country that is just emerging from conflict.
  2. The necessity to have a structured engagement with the government and obtain its commitment to work with the private sector.
  3. A differentiated mission as compared to other business member organizations in focusing on economic reforms while leaving space for the PSDC to develop market-orientated activities that wil help Iraqi businesses become more competitive.
The PSDC aims to achieve 5 key objectives by 2015:
  1. Build the PSDC as a sustainable and recognized organization which effectively voices Iraqi private sector concerns.
  2. Becoming an influential partner in a public-private dialogue process aimed at accelerating growth.
  3. Contribute to tangible economic reforms leading to quatifiable impact for the Iraqi economy.
