With over 20 years’ experience working in the public sector, we at ABECEB support our clients, both governments and international organizations, in the analysis, design and development of public policies focused on high-impact results.

Governmental institutions face the challenge of designing and managing public policies, responding to political changes and providing efficient services to their citizens in spite of budgetary restrictions. To address these demands, governments and public institutions must combine a strong capacity for planning and managing public policies with a robust design process and the ability to adapt to an ever more dynamic political and social context.

We work with organizations in the public sector, helping them to establish a vision for strategic results, create a solid database, rigorously evaluate their options amid much uncertainty, design an actionable plan, secure the support of the main stakeholdersand assess progress from design to execution, ensuring that the strategies have a long-lasting impact.


We worked with a provincial government on the competitiveness of businesses in that province.

The main objective of the engagement was to develop a study which assessed the competitive factors in the province’s most representative value chains, considering opportunities and determining factors for each of them.

Our approach was to analyze the province’s systemic conditions in comparative terms, the micro conditions of each of the chains, and to carry out a subsequent sensitivity analysis. The 3 main areas of the analysis were: Systemic competitiveness in the province; Micro competitiveness of selected value chains; Sensitivity analysis on the change of key variables.

The following chains were selected: Automotive and Car Parts; Capital Goods; Agricultural Machinery; Casting and Forging; Plastics; Wood and Furniture; Footwear.

We worked with an ed-tech organization in a federal observatory of investments, public policies and labor demand.
The general objective of the project consisted in developing, implementing and transferring to the provinces a methodology for assessing and monitoring key indicators for social and productive development and labor demand in each of the country’s provinces. This allowed us to come up with valuable information for designing strategies to link the requirements of productive sectors in terms of labor demand and the technical and professional education (TPE) offer.

Identification and Tracking of Technical Labor Demand across the country
The project objectives were:

1) to develop a deep understanding of the modus operandi, the trends and the potential of the country’s most relevant production sectors, which could have a determining impact on the demand for technical personnel during the next decade, and 2) to put in place a system which allows for the ongoing identification of technical workforce demands by sector at a provincial level and, as a consequence, provides information which helps to create policies to address the needs for goods and services production
