PSLOs in just a few lines

The Private Sector Liaison Officers Network (PSLO Network) is a network of over 160 business intermediary organizations (chambers of commerce and industry, business and trade associations, investment promotion agencies) in more than 100 countries, designed to facilitate World Bank Group (WBG) communications with the private sector. The World Trade Centre Montréal has been actively involved with the WBG for over 15 years; it is an official member of the PSLO network. The PSLOs’ role includes: facilitating local companies’ contact with the WBG and providing access to WBG business opportunities; acting as the voice of their national private sector in advising the WBG on how to better engage companies on development issues; and disseminating WBG knowledge and research of interest to the private sector.

PSLOs organize a number of events throughout the world with the support of the WBG, including:

  • Business opportunities seminars: presentations on World Bank (WB) Procurement, IFC co-financing, and MIGA guarantees
  • Joint private sector delegations to the WBG headquarters in Washington (usually sector-specific with companies from several countries)
  • Business missions to the field: joint delegations of companies from several countries to WBG client countries, including meetings with WBG country offices, government project implementing agencies, and business-to-business meetings with local companies
  • Private sector consultations on WBG corporate policies
  • WBG report presentations (i.e. annual Doing Business report)

At the Chamber, the Acclr team includes a PSLO to help facilitate your company’s internationalization by providing access to the World Bank’s calls for tender. Contact our PSLO to use her services or to learn more about the ways in which a PSLO can provide support for your dealings with the World Bank.
