According to bank documents, the project objective is to increase private investment and growth of small and medium enterprises in selected economic corridors.
The proposed project will be structured in four interrelated components:
Enabling environment for trade and investment: this component will strengthen the regulatory and institutional environment for private investment and trade by supporting regulatory reforms, capacity building and selected investments in government systems, small works, and equipment;
Catalytic investments in productive infrastructure: this component will support improvements in productive infrastructure (e.g. industrial infrastructure, storage, logistics centers) and quality infrastructure (e.g. labs and certification centers) in economic hubs for the corridors of focus, where private sector demand is confirmed. It will seek to promote private sector participation to ensure a sustainable business model and potentially mobilize private investment through public private partnerships;
Supporting firm growth: this component will support interventions in the supply and demand sides of access to finance, and business development services to improve firm growth, productivity and market access for MSMEs in the project corridors, with special attention to addressing the specific constraints of women-owned MSMEs;
Project Management and M&E will provide the necessary technical and financial support for the implementation of the project and results measurement.
