AMMAN — Talal Abu Ghazaleh Group International (TAGI) and the UNDP on Sunday launched the "Partnership forum between the UN and the business sector" during a meeting held at the Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Knowledge Forum.

The partnership forum aims at having a comprehensive, sustainable economy that presents services to citizens and societies through businesspeople in cooperation with the public sector, according to a TAGI statement.

Talal Abu Ghazaleh said the establishment of the forum is a joint initiative between TAGI and the UN to enhance human development.

UNDP Country Director Zena Ali Ahmad reviewed the scopes of cooperation between the two sectors through the forum, which will be open for business companies, associations, and chambers of trade and commerce to join it.
