World Bank Evaluates Strategy in Macedonia

The World Bank will publish a progress report this coming April to assess the gains and chart the future directions of its programs in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. This is a follow up to the country partnership strategy issued in 2007.

Three projects to support economic development, land administration and energy were identified in the CPS. According to World Bank Country Operations Officer Denis Boskovski, the decision on whether or not to pursue these initiatives will depend on issues to be identified in the progress report.

Other upcoming World Bank projects in the country include the construction of feeder roads and a conditional cash transfer project.

Aside from the initiatives mentioned, the bank is expected to implement two more investment loans totaling US$35 million.
