The Regions

 

The World Bank today operates out of more than 130 offices worldwide. An increased presence in client countries is helping the Bank to better understand, work more effectively with, and provide more timely services to its partners in those countries. Ninety-six percent of Country Directors/Country Managers and 40 percent of staff are based in countries within each of the  six geographic regions. The regional sections highlight the major goals achieved, projects undertaken, strategies revised, and publications produced in fiscal year 2016.
