2010-2011 - Democratic Republic of Sao Tome and Principe - Interim Country Strategy Paper
Sao Tome and Principe‟s current strategic framework is the 2002-2015 Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP). It will, however, be replaced in 2011, before its completion, by a new strategic framework which takes into account the new vision for the country‟s economic transformation into a services hub for the region. In order to ensure the smoothest possible adaptation to this transitional phase heralding a fundamental change in the country‟s strategic framework, Bank assistance over the 2010-2011 period will be in the form of a two-pronged Interim Strategy Paper (I-CSP). Indeed, in addition to its intrinsic project-driven objectives, the I-CSP will serve as a lever for a more comprehensive strategy for the 2010-2016 period, and is underpinned by activities that will prepare the way for this future strategy. This underpins the operational blending of projects and a cluster of activities targeting studies, project identification, business law and the statistical system.
