Private sector leadership and the future of local economic development

Economic development does not happen without the private sector making investments and creating jobs. However, how can we tap the private sector in more ways than just investing, trying to make a profit and growing jobs in our communities? 

This webinar is part of a series of events to mark the 40th anniversary of the OECD Local Employment and Economic Development (LEED) Programme, including reflecting on the lessons learned from the past 40 years of the local development, and the direction that needs be taken for the future. .
