Afghanistan: Economic Governance in Afghanistan - Sustainable Economic
Policy and Institutional Reform Support Program (USAID 2002-2005) TSG, as
subcontractor to BearingPoint, is providing technical assistance for the
USAID-funded Sustainable Economic Policy and Institutional Reform Support
Program. TSG's work focuses on implementation and institutionalization of
trade policy and promotion, and institutional reforms in core macroeconomic
and structural reform areas. The assistance will support the newly elected
Transitional Authority of Afghanistan (TAA) established in Kabul June 14,
2002 which assumed authority June 22. Support will be targeted primarily
towards the basic economic governance institutions currently in place. The
USAID assistance will facilitate the capacity of the core economic
management institutions to implement comprehensive economic reform measure
by promoting the development of sustainable economic policy formulation and
management capacity by Afghanistan officials and technical specialists and
through the full development of Afghan economic governance institutions.
TSG's assistance will provide analysis to the MOF and other relevant
agencies (Ministry of Economy or Ministry of Trade) on how to achieve open
markets and to develop a successful trade promotion strategy. One priority
will be to look at the impact of distorted customs exchange rates and
customs duties on effective protection and how that impacts the market. The
experts will recommend a plan to coordinate revision of custom tariffs at
the same time the distorted customs exchange rates are changed. Assistance
will provide policy options to the policy makers with discussion of impacts
and implications for the real sector and economic growth.
