|Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)||
Phase II of PSDI was launched operationally in early-2010 and a core team of private sector development experts has been recruited. Project management structures and systems were already in place under TA 6353-REG: Private Sector Development Initiative, i.e., phase I, and are continuing for this second phase.
This TA added to the work already completed through phase I and leverages the analysis of private sector development issues previously developed. To better track progress and results of PSDI, a monitoring and evaluation framework has been developed under phase II of PSDI that encompasses all phases of ADB private sector reform efforts in the Pacific region. In addition, gender has been incorporated as a crosscutting theme of this phase.
Approximately $11.97 million was committed and disbursed under TA.
The TA is completed by December 2014, and financial closing is underway.
