Matching Grant Schemes in Chile and Mauritius, 1999

    This paper compares two innovative approaches toward upgrading of firm technological and administrative capability in Chile and Mauritius. Both schemes utilize private sector agents to deliver services, focus on creating markets via stimulation of demand, and emphasize program sustainability and cost-recovery. However, the models differ in subtle yet important ways, with implications for design of programs elsewhere.

    For What's New visitors, the Tyler Biggs paper has just been posted below too, since it was published just after the case study on Chile and Mauritius, and added rather a lot of interesting detail.
