The Americas Business Dialogue (ABD), a private sector led initiative facilitated by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) has included several recommendations regarding GRP in its 2018-2021 Action for Growth Report.

Recommendation 3:

“Implement mechanisms to ensure legitimate, transparent and technically sound regulations, and adopt administrative simplification plans.”

Recommendation 7:
