Madagascar - Legal, Regulatory, and Judicial Reform Project
USAID (1998 - 2001)
To reverse the downward spiral of its economy, Madagascar faced the imperative of creating a legal environment more conducive to private sector investment and development. Under this project, Checchi provided assistance to the process of business law reform and helped to create and implement alternative dispute resolution (ADR) mechanisms. The Project's Business Law Reform component focused on improving the legal framework for trade and investment, assisting the government of Madagascar in applying international best practices in redrafting and updating its property, company, financial and labor laws. In ADR, Checchi provided commentary on Madagascar's draft Arbitration Law, leading to the incorporation of UNCITRAL principles in the law as enacted by the National Assembly, helped establish the Madagascar Arbitration and Mediation Association, and worked to build arbitration and mediation capacity and demand.
