Support for the Task Force on Implementation of the Enterprise Law and the Investment Law

Introduction

Building on the success of the Project VIE 01/025 “Institutional Reform for Business Development” which supported the drafting process of the Enterprise Law and the Investment Law, this project aims to improve the effectiveness of the implementation and enforcement of these new laws through support to the Task Force on Implementation of the Enterprise Law and the Investment Law. 

This will be achieved through the accomplishment of four project outputs:

  1. Strengthened organizational structure (notably in terms of staffing and work modalities) of, and institutional back-up for, the Task Force;
  2. Improved capacity of the Task Force in monitoring, supervising, accelerating, and facilitating implementation of the new Enterprise Law and the Investment Law, at both the national and sub-national levels;
  3. Intensified advocacy efforts relating to the two laws (at both the national and provincial/municipal levels);
  4. Consolidated effort to institutionalize the Task Force’s work as part of a sustainable legal implementation and enforcement process.

This Project will be implemented by the Task Force on Implementation of the Enterprise Law and Investment Law with active participation of the Central Institute for Economic Management, Ministry of Planning and Investment, other national ministries, and business associations. The Project will build on and strengthen donor coordination and information sharing among relevant stakeholders active in business-related initiatives so that they more effectively and efficiently deliver technical assistance.

Through its support to the Task Force, the Project has an inherent focus on simplifying administrative procedures, broadening consultative mechanisms, and reducing administrative discretion, which should help to reduce an inherent bias against disempowered groups who have less access to bureaucratic decision makers. Thus, the Project’s work will help empower business people from the most disadvantaged groups in society. This should help ensure that the disadvantaged have better access to the benefits of increased employment and output growth. Consequently, the Project is consistent with the high priority attached to poverty alleviation in both UNDP and the Government strategies for providing technical assistance. UNDP support through this Project will contribute to increased, and ensure more equitable distribution of, business investment and employment.

 

What are the project's key results?

  • Strengthened organizational structure (particularly in terms of staffing and work modalities) and institutional back-up for  the Task Force.
  • Improved capacity of the Task Force in monitoring, supervising, accelerating and facilitating implementation of the new Enterprise Law and Investment Law, at both the national and sub-national levels.
  • Intensified advocacy efforts, relating to the two laws (at both the national and provincial/municipal levels).
  • Consolidated efforts to institutionalize the Task Force’s work as part of a sustainable legal implementation and enforcement process.
