The Pacific Islands Private Sector Organization (PIPSO) is the premier private sector representative body in the Pacific Islands region.
It was set-up through the mandate of the Forum Economic Ministers in 2005 to be the representative body of the Pacific region’s private sector and to ensure dialogue between public and private sectors for strengthening regional policy making.
PIPSO represents 20 National Private Sector Organisations (NPSOs) in the Pacific region.
The key role of the NPSOs is to advocate for the interests of the private sector at the country level and participate and contribute to the policy development and strategies for private sector development. NPSOs are required to be inclusive of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and Women in Business as their members.
