Legal and economic framework for business activity

Country: Palestine

ASI advised the Palestinian Ministry of Economy and Trade on the reform of the legal and regulatory framework for private sector activity.  An associated part of the project involved advising the Palestinian Government on improving the implementation of the Palestinian-Israeli Economic Agreement, whose provisions influenced the success of private sector activity in Palestine.  Two versions of company law, which existed on the West Bank and in Gaza, were replaced by a new modern company law. Advice was also provided on the reform of other key laws.
