World Bank Vice President for Africa to visit Ghana

The World Bank Vice President for Africa, Makhtar Diop, will make his first official visit to Ghana later this week for talks with President John Dramani Mahama, senior government officials, as well as women, business, and civil society leaders, February 14 and 15.

A statement to the Ghana News Agency in Accra by the World Bank Accra office said Ghana joined the World Bank in September 1957, a development partnership which Vice President Diop describes as having grown strongly.

The bank noted that over the past several decades, “we are happy to see Ghana continuing to make major strides in maintaining its high economic growth while investing in the health, education, and job opportunities for its people”.

At the end of the visit, he will hold a dialogue session with the media.
