"For reforms to endure, one ultimately needs to create sustainable institutions". This for me is the learning point in the whole paper as it concerns low- and middle-income countries especially in sub-Saharan Africa.
An important area where searchlight needs to be beamed for proper scrutiny in sub-Saharan Africa is the private sector and its accountability profile. A lot is happening in this important sector that require urgrnt evaluation in terms of their impact on performance, productivity and executive management operation within the confines of best practice protocols. Protocol violation appears to be the bane of under-performance and corporate frauds in the private sector of the economy in sub-Saharan Africa. There is need to re-define the work ethics requirements for executive management in the private sector in order to shore up accountability, productivity and protocol compliance managers.
