About the Programme:

REMIT was launched in November 2021 and is now in third year of its programme cycle. ASI- REMIT was assigned two broad areas of the Programme, viz. revenue mobilization and improving investment climate whereas trade and macroeconomy were being implemented by International Trade Center (ITC) and World Bank Trust Fund (WBTF) respectively. Despite challenges and pause period, ASI–REMIT successfully delivered substantial and significantly important reforms and  secured performance rating of “A” in the 2 years consecutively. Based on the successful implementation of planned initiatives and capability of the team to work across the spectrum, FCDO assigned additional components / thematic areas to ASI–REMIT.
