IFC International Education Conference 2008: “Investing in the Future: Innovation in Private Education”
May 14-16, 2008
IFC, the largest multilateral investor in the private education sector in emerging markets, hosted a major international conference at its headquarters in Washington, D.C., May 14-16, 2008, that brought together investors, specialists, financiers, and other observers to explore the future of private education and discuss key business opportunities. The past five years have seen a considerable increase in the recognition of the significant contribution that private education can bring to emerging market countries. Many governments are actively encouraging private sector growth in education while remaining aware of the need to ensure that such provision meets appropriate standards and benchmarks.
