Today at the joint SSF-SECO session titled “Scaling private investments for impact: success factors of public-private collaboration”, State Secretary Marie-Gabrielle Ineichen-Fleisch announced the creation of a new public-private partnership aimed at mobilizing 1 billion Swiss francs for development projects that create sustainable development impact.

This initiative is a true example of Buildign Bridges as Switzerland’s two biggest banks, UBS and Credit Suisse, announced they will participate in the new initiative alongside the Swiss government’s State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) and its Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
