Statement by Mrs. Lilianne Ploumen at the 94th meeting of the Development Committee held on October 8, 2016 (English)

This is a statement by Mrs Lilianne Ploumen, Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation at the ninety-fourth meeting of the Development Committee held on October 8, 2016.She states that Today’s Development Committee meeting marks an important opportunity to position the World Bank Group (WBG) in the development landscape for the years ahead. As we have turned our attention to implementing the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda on Financing for Development, our constituency underscores the important role the WBG has to play in making the next 15 years a success for development. We view the WBG as a crucial partner in delivering development solutions and continue to value its convening power, its public-private liaising function and its knowledge and expertise. While we welcome the WBG’s continued support for the countries in the Europe and Central Asia (ECA) region of our constituency, we urge the WBG to deepen its engagement in the ECA region to help overcome enduring low growth rates. We especially encourage the IFC to increase its efforts to bring in the private sector, driving economic growth.
