Global: Assessment of the Program of the Foreign Investment Advisory Service to Reduce Administrative Barriers to Investment, 1995-2004

Jacobs, Cordova & Associates was selected to carry out the external assessment of the first ten years of the program of the Foreign Investment Advisory Service to Reduce Administrative Barriers to Investment. JC&A was contracted to perform “an independent review of FIAS work on administrative barriers to identify the impact of the work in improving investment environments, what seems to work best, and how this work should evolve in the future, with a particular focus on improving sound implementation of sustainable reforms.” Our assessment studied several key questions: “How effective has FIAS been in getting results? How can the FIAS approach be improved, in light of past experience and changing opportunities and constraints?” We made a number of recommendations to improve the value for money of the FIAS program.
