Moving from words to action was the theme of the private sector proposal presented at the International Conference on Financing for Development convened by The United Nations, in Monterrey, Mexico ("the Conference"), from March 18 to 22, 2002. First, while convened by the UN, it was undertaken in collaboration with the IMF, the World Bank and the WTO. Second, for the first time the global business community participated. This committee organized a Business Forum at the Conference, selecting senior private sector executives to engage senior government officials on policy oriented issues in a roundtable format, and to present concrete proposals to achieve specific development goals.
