Private Sector Coordinating Council (PSCC)1
The Private Sector Coordinating Council (PSCC) includes within its membership the major institutions that represent most of the Palestinian private sector. These institutions provide a wide range of specialized services which benefit their members and support them in their business endeavors. These institutions carry the responsibility of representing their members in the administrative, technical and advocacy roles with the aim of improving the business enabling environment. The German Federal Enterprise for International Cooperation (GIZ) and the Canadian Department of Foreign Aid, Trade and Development (DFATD) provide funding to PSCC.
The following organizations are members of the Private Sector Coordination Council (PSCC):
The PSCC is chaired by the FPCCIA, with a rotating secretariat between the first four members every 6 months. In order to achieve the highest levels of representation, the PSCC has formed what is known as “The Council of the Sixty”. This council includes all members of the PSCC, and a number of representatives of other special sectors, as well as representatives of large companies.
