TUNIS, March 19, 2015—World Bank Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer Sri Mulyani Indrawati issued the following statement today:
“On behalf of the World Bank Group I would like to express my deepest condolences to the families of those who lost their lives and to the people and government of Tunisia.
I am deeply saddened by the horrific attacks that occurred at the historical Bardo museum in Tunis.
As an example of a successful democratic transition, Tunisia stands as a beacon for the region. Since 2011, Tunisians have passed hurdle after hurdle and proved their deepest commitment to transform their country in a peaceful way.
This attack, which occurred during my visit to Tunisia, will only strengthen our resolve to stand by the Tunisian people and support the government in creating shared and equitable growth.”
