World Bank Clarification

March 27, 2015




In the context of some recent media coverage, the World Bank would like to clarify that Mr. Andre Mrost is not a World Bank staff member or consultant, and the World Bank does not have any contractual relationship with either Mr. Mrost or Just Solutions Network.

The World Bank Group is committed to partnering with the Government of Uzbekistan with support from development partners, and national and international civil society organizations to modernize the agriculture sector in Uzbekistan and, in particular, to address the issues related to the use of child and forced labor in cotton production.
