On November 30, 2011, the United States Government met for the first time with all four Partnership for Growth (PFG) partners in Busan, South Korea, where they were gathered for the Fourth High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness. At the PFG meeting, the USG and the PFG partners, with Finance Secretary Cesar V. Purisima representing the Philippines, discussed ways to deliver meaningful results, ensure mutual accountability and empower country ownership. On December 1, 2011, Secretary Purisima also participated in a high level panel discussion on development cooperation and building more effective public-private partnerships at the private sector plenary session. PFG is a partnership between the United States and a select group of countries to accelerate and sustain broad-based economic growth by putting into practice the principles of President Obama’s Policy Directive on Global Development. The Philippines is one of only four PFG countries and the only one in Asia. The GPH-USG PFG Joint Country Action Plan is available on the internet.
