According to professional organizations, licensing or membership requirements are a prerequisite in order to practice many professions or to benefit from the services of professional organizations.  Professional organizations exist and tend to exert influence on political decisions. Some notable professional organizations include the Patronat (Private Sector Association), National Federation of Fisheries, and the Industry and Mining federations.  Starting a commercial bank or microfinance institution requires approval and license from the Central Bank.
