Crown Agents helps countries to achieve sustainable economic growth and generate wealth in order to reduce poverty and improve the lives of their people.
The capacity for governments to foster economic growth lies at the heart of their ability to meet public policy objectives such as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). A strong relationship between the public and private sectors is pivotal for economic development as the amount of public funding available to governments is largely determined by the economic success of the private sector.
The modest economies of developing countries and consequent narrow tax bases affords their public administrations limited means to fund necessary public investment and service provision in the absence of external donor support. It is therefore crucial for such countries to stimulate economic growth by integrating into the regional and larger global economy.
Crown Agents has a sophisticated understanding of economic development grounded in its long-standing practical experience of working with public administrations, donors and international organisations in emerging and transition economies.
Our technical, consultancy, capacity building and change management expertise is widely deployed to help governments boost their economies, increase public revenues and enhance their reputations as centres for successful business.
Trade facilitation, customs modernisation, tax, ICT and institutional development, financial management, procurement, supply chain are amongst the range of support services we provide.
