President Ernest Bai Koroma has acknowledged the World Bank Group’s contribution to Sierra Leone’s development efforts as the country and the Bank Group reflect on more than half a century of sustained partnership.
Sierra Leone joined the World Bank and the International Development Association (IDA) on November 13, 1962. The country’s membership with the Bank clocked 55 years last week. World Bank Sierra Leone Country Manager, Parminder Brar and team last Friday ( 17th November 2017) visited the President at State House in Freetown to formally inform him and the people of Sierra Leone about this landmark achievement.
