We are a coalition of global businesses dedicated to advancing sustainable economic development and the rule of law through capacity building and a rules-based system for global trade and investment. We work in partnership with diverse stakeholders, including leaders from government, NGOs, academia and international institutions.
BCGD has long been at the forefront of developing and supporting capacity building policies and programs for developing countries. We advocate for and implement capacity building that advances the rule of law and transparent government, facilitates international trade, and develops infrastructure that connects people to local, regional and global markets.
