Macedonia - Transit Facilitation Project (Inglês)

This audit, largely concurs with the Implementation Completion Report ratings of the project outcome as highly satisfactory, with a likely sustainability, and substantial institutional development impact. However, it downgrades the Bank performance to just satisfactory, in view that the Bank should have considered an assessment of the transport sector investment program, and through its economic dialogue, reviewed such investments, instead of limiting the operation to the road sector, thus ignoring investments in the railway system, a sub-sector likely to have significant, negative fiscal consequences. Lessons suggest that although a simple, well-focused project design is conducive to success, it risks leaving behind significant sector issues, which should be included in Bank-country dialogue, such as in this case: the railway sector, where the decision-making process for FYR Macedonia, is questioned, on the grounds of not being economically viable; and, road funding, and concessioning, present significant risks, given the potential for economic distortions under the current funding approach. Thus, it is suggested that Bank-International Monetary Fund cooperation in transport projects can be especially useful, in projects with a focus on transit facilitation objectives.
