Promoting partnerships for stronger society

Dec 18, 2014

Corporate-NGO partnerships can be challenging, but they offer major benefits for both sides and bring a long-lasting impact on the society and economic development. To support them AmCham and RBS held a seminar in the Competitiveness Dialogue Series to discuss the topic of partnerships between civil society organziations and businesses at the beginning of December.

The seminar focused on how to enhance the partnerships between civil society and the private sector leading to more social capital, stronger society and economic development. According to various studies, Latvia has low levels of social capital, a resource critical to ensuring a strong, prosperous society.

Joining the seminar were the following experts:

The event was moderated by leadership and good governance expert Inese Voika.

During the discussion, experts agreed that much remains to be done in order to engage society and business in the work of NGOs as well as to raise the profile of NGOs.
