G-PSF a highly successful reform platform • World Bank Investment Climate Assessment lists the G-PSF as one of the key factors for the economic success of Cambodia • Royal Government of Cambodia uses the G-PSF to propose measures to respond to the crisis – several consultations on-going • 2009 Memo from World Bank to RGC recommends using the G-PSF for identification and monitoring of reforms • G-PSF is an integral apparatus of the RGC for private sector consultation and engagement of development partners in technical assistance. • Review of 31 PPDs worldwide shows G-PSF as among highest performers. 4

  5. Why have we been successful • Political willingness from the Royal Government of Cambodia, in particular the Prime Minister • Cambodia is pro-private sector, we believe PS will achieve poverty alleviation • Cambodia is an open economy • RGC understands that regulations are better drafted and betterimplemented with PS participation • Private Sector willing to contribute constructively • G-PSF is an integral part of the government apparatus. 5

  10. Challenges in institutionalization • PSF by-laws regulate only the private sector • - The Royal Government of Cambodia has strong ownership of the process, G-PSF is an RGC mechanism • Government better prepared than the PS • - Quality of RGC participants very high; • - The PS has limited capacity to raise and research strategic issues; • BMOs are weak • - The sustainability of BMOs is not assured, even the stronger associations may fail with the economic crisis (fewer members, less revenue from services) • - Several small BMOs - not capable of serving as secretariat to a WG • - Even with 2-year capacity building, no assurance of BMO sustainability • - Can BMO play the role of a neutral, honest broker and ensure outreach ? • Quality of issues raised • - Quality of issues raised varies with the WG • - Limitations on the types of research that development partners can provide (IFC, USAID) • - Quality sometimes not up to RGC expectations 10
