The BPP is a flagship initiative of the Australian Government. It supports partnerships with businesses to deliver sustainable economic growth and poverty reduction, while also ensuring commercial returns for business.
“Business will play a central role in rebuilding Sri Lanka’s economy as it recovers from COVID-19, and this exciting opportunity to partner with the Australian Government can support positive change through improved livelihood opportunities, enhanced gender equality and an inclusive economic recovery,” said HE David Holly, Australian HIgh Commissioner to Sri Lanka.
The BPP can co-finance with businesses to support COVID-19 economic recovery by establishing partnerships which contribute to digitalisation, skills development for workers and micro, small and medium-sized enterprises, economic opportunities for women, or green recovery. In Sri Lanka, we are seeking partnerships in the following sectors:
· Information and communication technology (ICT)
· Agriculture technology and fisheries
· Online education and education technology
· Financial inclusion
Businesses can apply individually or in a consortium. The Australian Government will provide matched funding of up to AUD 500,000 to successful business initiatives.
