We are a coalition of global businesses dedicated to advancing sustainable and inclusive economic development.
BCGD is at the forefront of advancing capacity building for developing countries. We create new alliances and partnerships. Through these alliances, we advance global trade and development strategies for global prosperity and opportunity.
BCGD worked successfully with partners in Congress, the Executive Branch, the nonprofit community and business to include in Trade Promotion Authority legislation a new core priority of US trade policy: “strengthening good governance, transparency, the effective operation of legal regimes and the rule of law…”
Leading organizations endorse pro trade policies, including free trade agreements, are important drivers of sustainable and inclusive development when combined with development assistance and high standards.
BCGD and other development organizations work closely with Members of Congress and senior Administration officials on all elements of pending trade legislation involving developing and middle income countries. The importance of BCGD’s role, including support for Trade Adjustment Assistance and trade preference programs such as the statement linked here, has been recognized by a bipartisan group of congressional leaders and senior Administration officials.
BCGD sends out a bi-monthly update to keep our trustees and partners informed.
