From the IDB: "The proposed learning mission will support the development of operations that seek to unlock growth in the International Business Sector, specifically Business Process Outsourcing. This complements the strategic objectives of the country strategy by focusing on the enhancement of private sector competitiveness and supporting foreign currency-earning sectors. The applicability of this project to the enhancement of Barbados' International Business Sector is twofold and will specifically: 1. Allow representatives of the Government of Barbados to view best practices used by Uruguay XXI, the investment and export promotion agency of Uruguay, to enhance Uruguay's high value-added service exports. 2. Provide the Government of Barbados with information on the policy tools used support export, and job generation by attracting foreign direct investments in the International Business Sector, specifically Business Process Outsourcing."
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IADB
The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IIC is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
