Private Sector Advisory Group (PSAG)

The PSAG brings together international leaders of the private sector whose shared goal is to help developing countries improve their corporate governance.

Through the PSAG, IFC is able to bring the practical experience of the international private sector to bear upon the issues and challenges facing corporate governance in developing countries.

PSAG members participate in many IFC's activities, providing counsel on new strategies and sharing their practical experiences with the Forum's global networks. Their efforts include involvement in IFC's international consultations, publications, practical guides and toolkits, and capacity-building programs.

Succeeding Ira M. Millstein (Chairman Emeritus of the PSAG), Peter Dey was appointed as Chair of the PSAG in October 2005.
