The WB with its experience and expertise is expected to bring the necessary drive and stamina to the Project at hand. The implementation is based on the Public Finance Management Reform Strategy approved by GoZ. The main project development objectives are: increase of budget credibility and fiscal discipline, enhance budget reporting, increase transparency in procurement, increase internal control and enhance internal audit, as well as to promote effectiveness in tax collection.
