The CNEA secretariat took part in the 9th international Workshop on Public-Private Dialogue, held from 09 to 11 May 2017, at the headquarters of the Tunisian Union for Industry, Trade and Handcraft (UTICA) in Tunis. This meeting, was organised by the World Bank Group, and was attended by nearly 200 participants, representing 35 public private dialogue bodies from 26 countries. During the workshop, participants discussed specific cases of public-private dialogues, to explore critical subjects related to this theme and to address key success factors as best practices in terms of organisation and operation in order to achieve inclusive economic development.

From its side, the Moroccan delegation attending the meeting took the opportunity to share the experience of the National Committee for Business Environment, as the main platform for public-private dialogue in improving the business environment in Morocco. Emphasis was put on its major achievements such as: the simplification and dematerialisation of administrative procedures, the creation of single windows and the modernisation of the legal and regulatory framework for business. The Moroccan delegation also addressed the challenges that CNEA must overcome to further enhance its effectiveness and efficiency.

The  9th international Workshop on Public-Private Dialogue concluded with a host of recommendations including :

  • the success and sustainability of Public Private Dialogue (PPD) depend on having a clearly articulated vision and clear leadership;
  • the effective involvement of leadership at all levels to accelerate the implementation of all the reforms emerging from a consensus process through dialogue is a necessity for achieving sustainable development;
  • the organisation of stakeholders and especially the private sector favours the appropriation of the tool by all stakeholders, and especially by economic operators.
  • The inclusion of young people and women in these public private dialogue bodies is strongly recommended.
