Egypt - Assistance for Trade Reform Project
USAID (2002 - 2004)
The Assistance for Trade Reform project is building the capacity of the Egyptian Government to formulate and administer trade policy by: (i) establishing a WTO unit within the Ministry of Foreign Trade (MOFT); (ii) providing technical assistance on WTO compliance, export promotion techniques, and best practices; and (iii) improving the performance of cooperating MOFT divisions through reengineering processes. Under a subcontract with Nathan Associates, Checchi provided a Senior Institutional Development Advisor with expertise in restructuring government agencies to lead the reengineering team. Working with senior-level counterparts from each cooperating division, the advisor was responsible for designing and implementing an organizational structure, processes, and procedures to improve communication and cooperation among the divisions and leave them better equipped to achieve the Ministry's trade liberalization and reform objectives.

Egypt - Assessment of Trade and Investment Trends
USAID (2000)
As part of a project to assist USAID/Cairo and the Egyptian Government to monitor program results and prepare for the development of a new country strategy for Egypt, Checchi participated in a series of cross-cutting analyses and strategic planning studies focusing on economic growth, quality of life, and competitiveness issues. An important component of this work was a study of trade and investment trends and prospects that compared Egypt's progress with that of other developing countries, examined the potential impact of alternative foreign exchange rate scenarios on foreign direct investment and international competitiveness, and assessed Egypt's readiness and ability to benefit from various international trade arrangements.
