BEI was commissioned by Danida to review the implementation of their Private Sector Development Programme (2000-2005) to strengthen the programme and make recommendations for a future strategy for the next five years (2006-2010), based on the lessons they have learnt from the past. The purpose of the PSD Programme of Danida was to contribute to the economic growth and social development of the country by facilitating technology/know-how transfer and promoting sustainable, business-to-business partnerships between private companies in Bangladesh and Denmark. Under the Programme, the establishment of long-term business-to-business partnerships is supported with grants for subsidizing the costs of initial partner identification visits, feasibility studies required for assessing the scope of co-operation and subsequent training, technical assistance, technology adaptation, export promotion and improvement of working environment.
