Sustainable Investment: Economic Development in the Africa, Caribbean, Pacific R
BizClim aims to improve the business environment across the ACP region by helping countries improve regulations egislation, institutional set up and financial measures
Boosting investment prospects in African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries has been the mission of the ACP Business Climate facility (BizClim) since its inception in 2006.
As overall project manager, WYG International has played a major role in the success of this €20 million European Development Fund project. Our multi-disciplinary team has provided technical assistance to 27 governments across the region, from upstream studies into obstacles to private sector investment to advice on legislative and institutional reform. Extensive and complex training programmes have resulted in a network of national experts in over 40 ACP countries. We have also worked multinationally, assisting the ACP region as a whole. Our activities have included preparing a Regional Investment Act for Africa on behalf of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development and facilitating the involvement of the European and African private sectors in the EU–Africa Business Forum. A dynamic ‘think-tank’ ensures that tools, methodologies and lessons learnt are disseminated quickly and effectively.
