The third UN Private Sector Forum on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) gathered Heads of State and Government with chief executives, civil society leaders and heads of inter-governmental organizations to identify concrete actions the private sector can take – individually and collaboratively – to help close key MDG implementation gaps, as well as to highlight ways in which Governments can further facilitate business engagement for development. Chaired by President Abdoulaye Wade of Senegal and Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen, the Forum was held on 22 September at United Nations Headquarters in New York in conjunction with the UN General Assembly’s high-level Summit assessing progress – as well as gaps and challenges – in achieving the eight MDGs first introduced in 2000.
