  • Average Progress. The Reform Process is underway but sustained action by both the Government and the Bank is needed to maintain momentum or no actions has been undertaken since the last update;

  • Initial Progress in the Implementation of the Reform. Initial measures of procurement reform are being taken but progress is still weak. Pro-active Bank and other donors involvement is needed to get the reform process under way.
