While there are some policies and measures in place, more concrete steps must be taken to strengthen Chad’s performance across all indicators and underlying sub-indicators. Particular attention should be given to increasing the robustness of the country’s policy goals and commitments.
Among the three EIRA risk areas, breach of State obligations is lower compared to discrimination between foreign and domestic investors and unpredictable policy and regulatory change.
