Harnessing the Private Sector to Fuel Economic Growth in Niger

Niger power plant

Niger has been undertaking a steady effort to privatize state-owned industries with support from the World Bank for over a decade. Jean-Paul Gauthier helped advance Niger's efforts from 2005-2006 as a senior advisor with the World Bank.

Today, Jean-Paul helps Locus Economica clients develop strategies for unleashing the power of the private sector to drive sustainable economic growth. Under his leadership, Locus regularly helps clients develop private-led special economic zones that benefit the public and result in positive structural reforms.
