Call for Proposal 2016: Chile Prosperity Fund to Promote Global Sustainable Growth

Deadline: 15 February 2016

The British Embassy Santiago has announced a Prosperity Fund to promote the economic reform and development needed for growth in partner countries. The core aims of the new Prosperity Fund are to support sustainable economic growth leading to a reduction in poverty in recipient countries.

The priorities will include improving the business climate, competitiveness and operation of markets, energy and financial sector reform, and increasing the ability of partner countries to tackle corruption. As well as contributing to a reduction in poverty in recipient countries, we expect these reforms to create opportunities for international business including UK companies.
