Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to Bank documents, the objective of the program is to support policy reforms that aim to improve (i) public finance efficiency and (ii) private sector competition. These reforms substantiate the government Fiscal Strategy 2019-2021 by helping the authorities design fiscal measures that will not only achieve the debt stabilizing levels but ensure the social protection of the vulnerable. It also strengthens the market competition and reduces the cost of doing business.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF WORLD BANK

The World Bank Inspection Panel is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by a World Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Inspection Panel, they may investigate to assess whether the World Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can contact the Inspection Panel or submit a complaint by emailing ipanel@worldbank.org. You can learn more about the Inspection Panel and how to file a complaint at: http://ewebapps.worldbank.org/apps/ip/Pages/Home.aspx.
