What is the Business Partnerships Platform?
The Business Partnerships Platform is helping to accelerate Australia’s collaboration with business in addressing development challenges in our region.
How We Partner
BPP partnerships demonstrate mutual sharing of objectives, priorities and capabilities and a clear vision for how Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s involvement and financial investment can deliver greater results than could otherwise be achieved. BPP partnerships are grounded in the five key principles of diversity, equity, openness, mutual benefit and courage.
Where we partner
Promoting women’s rights and women’s empowerment is ‘smart economics’. When women are fully involved in economic development and their equal rights are promoted, countries become more equitable and prosperous. BPP initiatives promote women’s economic empowerment, and enhance women’s voice in decision-making, leadership and peace building.
