ITC’s Benchmarking and AIM for Results programme has been rolled out globally through partnerships with development agencies, and the support of donor governments. It has been developed in close consultation with Trade Promotion Organizations (TPOs) including least developed, developing and developed countries, and other international partners.
By the end of 2014, twelve TSIs were implementing AIM for Results, in countries including Bangladesh, Benin, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Mauritius (where two separate TSIs are participating), Morocco, Nicaragua, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Zambia and
In addition, five Caribbean countries - Barbados, Belize, Dominican
Republic, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago - had been benchmarked, in preparation for a Caribbean-focused AIM initiative.
While they are all at different stages of implementation, a consistent priority has been to create greater awareness about the importance of using results and impact measurement to understand, improve and manage their respective performance.
Over a five-year period, AIM for Results will assist some 50 TSIs to better serve the needs of their clients.
