A New Kind of Karaoke: join the conversation on local sourcing
If you know one thing about Building Markets, it’s that we’re passionate about local sourcing. Connecting local enterprises and entrepreneurs to business opportunities so they can provide local people with jobs and help to grow local economies is our wheelhouse.
To that end, over the next few months we’re going to be writing more regularly about local procurement and the ways in which it contributes to worldwide economic development, job creation, and the reduction of poverty.
We’ll feature posts from development and private sector movers and shakers, as well as some writing of our own from our projects and experiences. These posts will cover a wide range of angles on issues of job creation, procurement, access to markets, and strong domestic economies that impact and influence local procurement. Local sourcing is important, and we want to ensure it has a song at the open mic of the global development conversation.
Local sourcing is important in strengthening local economies and providing opportunities for people; sharing their successes and struggles, as well as issues that affect those opportunities, is also important. We hope you agree with us, and if not, well, we’ll see if we can’t convince you in the coming months.
The first post will be coming to you next week – we hope to see you then.
If you’re interested in writing for us, be sure to drop us a line. The more the merrier!
