THE ROLE OF THE GLOBAL PRACTICE FOR FINANCE, COMPETITIVENESS AND INNOVATION (FCI) IN THE WBG
Finance, Competitiveness and Innovation (FCI) works toward creating an enabling environment in which financial stability, efficiency and firm-level solutions are provided in an integrated way to crowd in the private sector, support the creation of markets, and accelerate equitable growth. FCI professionals lead or participate in a wide variety of analytical and advisory work that add to the core expertise delivered to client countries. Knowledge and learning are a central part of the FCI agenda, with work focused on the following thematic areas: (a) Financial Stability and Integrity; (b) Long Term Finance; (c) Financial Inclusion and Infrastructure; ; (d) Crisis & Disaster Risk Finance (e) Investment Climate; (e) Firms, Entrepreneurship and Innovation; (f) Markets and technology; and (f) Trade and regional integration. FCI works closely with the Global Practice for Macroeconomics, Trade and Investment (MTI) on systematic country diagnostics, country strategies, policy lending and other private sector diagnostics, analytical and lending activities.
With funding from the EU, FSI is delivering assistance to countries in the Caribbean region, specifically members of the Caribbean Forum (Cariforum) to carry out AML/CFT risk assessments. StAR was evaluated recently and advised to focus more of its work on its original mission of the denial of safe havens for corrupt funds. It will therefore develop a strategy for liaising with such jurisdictions and directing its knowledge and policy work to deal with this. (StAR External Review 2019 and response available here).
Roles & Responsibility:
FSI and StAR wish to hire an Extended Term Consultant to assist FSI in delivering asset recovery and AML/CFT related assistance to Cariforum countries and to assist StAR in redirecting more of its work to focus on safe havens.
