Promoting Economic Development in EECA
Legal reforms that enable growth and support the fight against corruption improve economic opportunity. However, non-enforcement and lengthy delays of court decisions are significant problems which affect the business environment, investor confidence and economic indicators. Among specific concerns are a lack of effective measures to prevent and punish debtors who hide assets and evade court orders, and inadequate mechanisms for bailiffs to obtain relevant information on debtors’ assets.
In Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECA), IDLO is providing technical assistance to strengthen commercial law, transform public procurement, establish mediation mechanisms, train bailiffs, and support judicial enforcement of decisions to improve economic opportunity.
With the commitment to implementing the United Nations' 2030 Agenda, IDLO's legal reform activities in Eastern Europe and Central Asia worked to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals 9 and 16. [ Find out more ]
