In the effort to ensure that the Public Private Dialogues are conducted at all levels, TNBC established sub- national Public Private Dialogues through Regional and Districts Business Councils(RBCs and DBCs) in 2005 and 2008 respectively. The RBCs and DBCs are chaired by Regional Commissioners and District Commissioners, with representation from public sector and private sector from the respective locality.
The aim of establishing Regional and District level PPDs is to enable Local government to address business and investment challenges in LGAs where regular interaction with businesses happens. TNBC is responsible for building capacity of RBCs and DBCs and scaling up issues that require national attention, to the national level dialogues.
TNBC has issued PPD Guidelines for Regional Business Councils (RBCs) and District Business Councils (DBCs), with the aim to increase effectiveness of regional dialogues in delivering reforms that improve business environment. The Regional dialogues are obliged to customize and deliver TNBC functions at their respective administrative and authoritative levels. The Regional and District Business Councils meetsquarterly, thus Four (4) PPD meetings per year for each Regional and Districts.
