Region: East Africa

The project required ASI to carry out a study to ascertain the status of divested enterprises, and assess the post-privatisation performance of the enterprises and their specific impact on the economy following their privatisation as at 31 December 2002.  The assignment included both a quantitative and qualitative analysis.
ASI staff assessed efficiency and equity effects of privatisation.  Efficiency effects include impact on enterprise performance and the equity element includes assessing impact on different stakeholders like labour and government. Quantitative and qualitative data analysis is conducted based on enterprise visits and research from centralised data agencies.
