The Central African Republic (CAR) joined the Integrated Framework in 2006 and started the Diagnostic Trade Integration Study (DTIS) process; the DTIS and its Action Matrix were validated in late 2007. DTIS priorities identified for agriculture, forestry, mining, transport infrastructure, private sector and business environment and regional integration were included in CAR's 2007 Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP) under the pillar targeting rebuilding and diversifying the economy.

CAR also benefitted from a Window II IF project addressing institutional capacity constraints including setting up the National Implementation Unit (NIU) and private sector export capacity with a focus on sesame export promotion.
