Technical assistance to the Administration Reform Support Program, Public Finance and the Mobilization of Internal Resources in the Dominican Republic

General objective:

 

Inequality has impeded human development in Dominican Republic society. Hence, a better management of public finances that allows a redistribution of resources to the neediest segments can be a key element for the equal development of the country.

The general objective of this project is to promote efficiency, transparency and a results-oriented public administration, allocating resources in line with the national development priorities, within the framework of the National Development Strategy 2030 of the Dominican Republic, contributing to the equitable distribution of incomes.

 

Specific objective
