PSI IN BRIEF
The goal of PSI is to promote sustainable economic development by means of stimulating innovative pilot investments in developing countries. By doing this, the Government of The Netherlands aims to contribute to poverty reduction through the creation of economic activity, employment and better income. A PSI project is an investment project, executed by a Dutch (or foreign) company in cooperation with a local company, in one of the developing countries eligible for PSI. The project needs to consist of hardware to be used in a production process (machinery, for example) as well as technical assistance (training, project management etc). The activity must be innovative for the respective country. These innovative investments will contribute to the growth of underdeveloped markets. The innovative character can consist of a new product, a new production method or new technology for the respective country. PSI reduces the risk for the companies that make this investment. The project must contribute to a long term cooperation between the two companies. After the project period, the companies need to make additional investments that contribute to further growth of revenue and employment. Furthermore, the project must be commercially viable and needs to have significant positive impact on the local economy. The Dutch Government attaches high importance towards Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and expects PSI projects to be trendsetters in their respective country and sector. PSI projects are result-based. This means that the grant is disbursed upon the realization of results that are determined before the start of the project. PSI consists of two sub-programmes: PSI Regular and PSI Plus. PSI Regular applies to 43 countries in Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe and Latin America, while PSI Plus offers more flexible conditions for projects in Afghanistan, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Pakistan, the Palestinian Authority, Sierra Leone and southern Sudan. The maximum project budget for a PSI project is EUR 1.5 million. The grant of PSI Regular consists of a 50 percent contribution to this budget. The maximum contribution therefore amounts to EUR 750,000. For PSI Plus, the contribution is 60 percent of the project budget. As a result, the maximum contribution is EUR 900,000. The Minister for Development Cooperation has assigned the execution of PSI to Agency NL, NL EVD International, agency of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and government organisation for international business and cooperation.
