The Enterprise Research Institute (ERI) is a leading consulting group in the development field. It works with governments and international finance institutions to provide advice and technical assistance that emphasizes the need for continuing, consistent reform to strengthen countries’ institutions that support economic growth.
ERI advises IFIs and governments on the implementation of these programs. ERI helps government officials to identify areas that have restricted private sector and financial market development. ERI also specializes in assessments of the environment for the private sector as well as analyzing barriers to the workings of financial markets.
Within the United States, ERI works with regional and local governments to analyze features of local economies and suggests policies to promote local development.
