Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) operates as a non-profit organization. The Organization provides business association development, regulatory reform, entrepreneurship and management programs, and other political services. CIPE serves communities worldwide.
CIPE is one of the four core institutes of the National Endowment for Democracy, and an affiliate of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Founded by President Reagan in 1983, our work is every bit as vital today as it was back then. From the Cold War to the heyday of democratic expansion in the 1990s, to the recent democratic backsliding and rise of populism across much of the world, democracy has struggled. In recent years, violent extremism, economic migration, and escalating inequality have presented new global challenges. Democracy will continue to deteriorate if government institutions ignore real economic and social needs of its citizens.
