Disclosable Restructuring Paper - Niger - Competitiveness Growth Support - P127204 : Disclosable Restructuring Paper - Niger - Competitiveness Growth Support - P127204 (English)

The objective of the Competitiveness Growth Support Project is to improve selected aspects of Niger's business environment, to support the development of the meat industry and to increase local business participation in the extractive industries sector. Overall project implementation is back on track. However, due to delays caused by the default of a slaughterhouse rehabilitation supplier, as well as the extremely long delays in the delivery of technical equipment and construction materials for the mineral laboratory and mining cadaster, additional time will be needed to complete all project activities. Therefore, the Government has submitted a request to extend the project closing date to February 28, 2021. Additional time will allow to complete the following activities: i) rehabilitation of the slaughter house, ii) elaboration of a new mining code, iii) support to Niger in becoming a compliant EITI member country, iv) finalize the rehabilitation and modernization of the mineral cadaster, v) further operationalize the Mineral Laboratory, notably the training of new (junior) staff. This extension will ensure continuity of the business climate reform in accordance with the 2017-2021 Government Action Plan as well as implementation of the reform activities and infrastructure works within the framework of the Niger, Competitiveness and Growth Support Project. The Task Team confirms that the proposed extension is fully aligned with the PDO and there are no outstanding audits.
