The Managing Director of the World Bank Group, Sri Mulyani Indrawati, is expected in Cameroon on 25 April 2016, we learned in a communiqué published on 20 April by this Bretton Woods institution. During her stay in Cameroon, Sri Mulyani Indrawati will meet with the Cameroonian public authorities as well as representatives of the private sector and local civil society.

According to the World Bank, this work visit is meant to “strengthen the partnership” with Cameroon and “discuss the priorities of the government: promote an inclusive growth and address the regional disparities in poverty, implement the structural reforms for faster growth, and improve the business environment for the creation of jobs”.
