UN-ESCWA is organizing an Expert Group Meeting (EGM) on "Fostering Partnerships between International and Regional Private Sector Institutions and their Counterparts in Crisis Stricken Countries: Towards a More Resilient Private Sector" from 12 to 13 December 2007, in Amman.
Through this EGM, ESCWA seeks to provide a platform for discussing the role private sector partnerships can play in promoting enterprise resilience and continuity in conflict situations and exploring their potential in fostering stability and peace in the countries in which they operate.

The EGM will bring together high-level regional and international experts on private sector and conflict, private sector representatives, in addition to public sector and civil society representatives concerned with private sector development policies in countries affected by conflict, mainly, Iraq, the occupied Palestinian territory, and Lebanon.
