Mauritius - Private Sector Competitiveness Development Policy Loan Project (English)

Ratings for the Private Sector Competitiveness Development Policy Loans (DPL) Project for Mauritius were as follows: outcomes were satisfactory, risk to development outcome was moderate, Bank performance was satisfactory, and Borrower performance was satisfactory. Some lessons learned included: the new programmatic DPL series was prepared in tandem with the public sector performance (PSP) DPL series and led to an integrated dialogue with the client, and joint internal processing, and targeting with better results. The PSC DPL series serve as an example of the Bank’s responsiveness and agility to meet a middle income client’s development priorities more geared towards policy and institutional support as opposed to public investment and capacity building. The loan was designed to include a certain degree of flexibility to allow the government to adapt the reform program as needed over time. Throughout the process of project design and preparation, the government placed great value on the knowledge package accompanying the DPL which contributes to reform planning and implementation. The results framework was realistic and with clear baseline data and targets that allowed proper monitoring of progress towards performance.
