    One year ago CSIS convened the Executive Council on Development – a bipartisan group of leaders from government, business, NGOs, and philanthropy – to explore how the U.S. government and private sector can work together to support the economic success of developing countries. In their final report, Our Shared Opportunity: A Vision for Global Prosperity, the Council provides a targeted set of recommendations for the U.S. government and private sector, calling for a greater reliance on business, trade, and investment tools to achieve better development outcomes. The report is part of CSIS’ Project on U.S. Leadership in Development, a partnership with the Chevron Corporation launched in 2011.
