Project Description

Summary from the IFC: The project is intended to facilitate a dialogue on increasing trade in services among Pacific Alliance members based on expertise, data analysis, and knowledge sharing. The World Bank Group will deliver support to the Pacific Alliance to improve export opportunities and promote the integration of the services market for services trade through three following components: an assessment of trade in services and related policies, best practices in promoting services exports and an assessment of the regulatory framework to cross-border trade in one specific services sector. The WBG will produce a study to assess trade in services and related policies in the PA countries in comparison to global trends, including trade in services flows and how services and services-manufacturing linkages in the PA countries compare to other OECD economies.

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/
