International Performance Review

The International Performance Review (IPR) is an important element of the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) designed as a platform to reflect and evaluate the results of initiatives implemented under the National Key Economic Areas (NKEAs) and Strategic Reform Initiatives (SRIs).

The IPR, which comprises a panel of international experts, invites outside-in perspectives to continually improve on the work we do and to ensure we maintain momentum in the transformation journey. The 2012 IPR session was held over three days in February 2013, marking the second time the panel convened to review the ETP and its progress. The panel comprised independent third-party experts ranging from international development organisations to large-scale multinational corporations as well as representatives from other governments.

Key to the session were presentations made by the Directors of the NKEAs and SRIs to the panellists, and the ensuing robust discussions that took place as questions were raised and feedback given. The review concluded with the IPR members presenting their findings to the Prime Minister and his Cabinet on the final day.

The members also held discussions with PriceWaterhouse Coopers, the appointed independent professional services firm which conducted the Agreed-Upon- Procedures (AuP) to provide third-party validation on the NKEA and SRI results and projects announced. The AuP helps check that the interpretation of the data and results are accurate and conforms to good international practice.
