The World Bank invited all members of the public, including private individuals, public organizations, and commercial entities to participate in a consultation process on the upcoming Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) for Sri Lanka.
For each country that the World Bank Group is engaged in, it prepares a Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) every 3-4 years. The existing strategy for Sri Lanka runs up to June 2012. Therefore the World Bank country office in Sri Lanka has initiated preparation of the next Country Partnership Strategy.
The objective of the CPS is to set out the rationale, objectives, strategies and direction of support to be provided by the World Bank Group for the next 4 years (2012 to 2016). This document is prepared in close consultation with the Government of Sri Lanka and other important stakeholders that includes the general public, civil society organizations, the private sector and other development partners in the country. It would seek to help the Government of Sri Lanka achieve the results identified by the country’s vision in selected areas of comparative advantage where the World Bank Group could best contribute.
The new Country Partnership Strategy will be launched in June 2012.
