Signing MOU with PCU

March 12,2013- CHF International signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Palestinian Contractors Union (PCU), a body that represents over 400 contractors in the West Bank and Gaza, many of whom CHF has worked with over the past decade to provide new or rehabilitated infrastructure, such as schools, clinics, parks, and roads. The MoU outlines CHF’s and partners ICMA’s support to the PCU via the Local Government and Infrastructure Program (LGI) funded by USAID, including assistance in developing a strategic plan, training the board of directors, and providing an opportunity to travel to the U.S. to meet with and exchange knowledge with American counterparts. This support will enable the PCU to better serve and respond to member needs, which is critical given the importance of the construction sector to the Palestinian economy.
