Strengthening democracy around the globe through private enterprise and market-oriented reform.

Providing business-led solutions.

Since 1983 CIPE has been working with local partners to craft business-driven solutions to social-economic problems that affect millions of people. We at CIPE believe that democracy is at its strongest when the private sector is flourishing. Working with our local partners that include business associations, chambers of commerce, think tanks, universities and advocacy organizations, CIPE is helping create the enabling environment for business to thrive. This can only happen when the core institutions of democracy are strong and transparent. CIPE currently has more than 200 projects on the ground, including grants with local partners, in over 80 countries to help build those institutions.
