Establishment surveys require trusted actors such as business associations to coordinate the survey and follow-up with establishments to ensure acceptable questionnaire response rates. As documented in the funding opportunity announcement and project document, there exists a mistrust between the public and private sectors in the project countries. In the past, this mistrust has impeded the willingness of businesses to participate in surveys conducted by government institutions. The project involved the main business associations of each sector to explain the purpose of the survey to its members and encourage them to fill out the questionnaire, which significantly increased the survey response rate.
