Abyrint is a management consulting firm. Abyrint is specialized in supporting governments in fragile states. These are countries that have recently emerged from conflict.
Abyrint focuses on core government systems. That includes public finance, central banking, governance, organization, process work flows and technologies. All the issues that makes a government work behind the scenes. The politics are powerless without a functioning state bureaucracy.
