Investing in agricultural productivity and related infrastructure is a major priority of these country-led partnerships, inspiring MCC to launch an innovative Agribusiness Development Initiative. MCC can better sustain the impact of its investments in partner countries to fight poverty and promote economic growth if those investments are linked to complimentary private sector investments. Investment promotion and facilitation efforts will target private businesses to provide complementary goods and services in the value-chains associated with MCC’s compacts. The focus countries for the pilot period are Ghana and Morocco.
