Project Description

This project provides support to the Government of Lebanon in improving its services and interactions with the private sector, with a focus on business entry and startups. This includes implementing a new framework that will lead to an optimized, transparent, shorter, and less expensive commercial registration process.

Investment Description
  • International Finance Corporation (IFC)

The infrastructure, hardware and part of the technical input will be procured and funded by GoL OMSAR with technical input and quality assurance from the WBG/IFC. Considering the multi-stakeholder nature of the reform, IFC will play a key role in stakeholder management and coordination.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC

The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org. You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org/
