World Bank Private Sector Liaison Office

Welcome to the Private Sector Liaison Officer (PSLO) section of the Trade Alliance web site. The World Bank Group has selected the Trade Alliance to host a Private Sector Liaison Officer (PSLO) for the Greater Seattle area and Pacific Northwest. As part of the PSLO Network, the Trade Alliance will work with the World Bank to increase the awareness and participation of companies in our region regarding World Bank Group efforts in developing countries.

Here are links to more information about the World Bank Group, which is comprised of five entities: 1) International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD); 2) International Development Association (IDA); 3) International Finance Corporation (IFC); 4) Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA); and 5) International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID).

We also provide links to procurement opportunities, key contacts at the World Bank, a list of other PSLOs and how to contact us to help you in seeking opportunities with the World Bank Group. Sam Kaplan is the Private Sector Liaison Officer at the Trade Alliance but the entire office can assist in World Bank Group activities.

Stop by often as we plan on adding and expanding this section of our web site over time.
