In 2010, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development convened an Informal Group on the Private Sector and Aid Effectiveness to better understand the role of aid as a catalyst in supporting effective private sector contribution to development. The Building Block (BB) on the Private Sector and the Thematic Session (TS) on Public-Private Cooperation at the High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness (HLF4) that took place in Busan, South Korea on November - December 2011, are products of this Informal Group. The Joint declaration on expanding and enhancing public private cooperation for development is a product of the BB and TS. The declaration suffers from some key omissions.
