1. Presentation of the Report on Special Investment for Development
The Report on Special Investment for Development that was presented today in the Council of Ministers discussed the issue through the eyes of the national and international investor, form accessing credit to red tape during the inception stage up to qualified labour. Considering this reality, the alternatives that were presented were less focused on the increase of benefits to the investors and more on decreasing the difficulties for the private sector.
In this line of investment, it is important not to overlook that not all the investment projects are good for the country or for the economy, hence, one has to do a technical study and an assessment of interest that the project generates. .
The creation of a Inter-ministerial Commission would be a first step to build such a team, one that would be responsible for the analysis of the private sector investment proposals both national and international.
