MINSK, January 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Belarus urges the World Bank to expand cooperation in road construction and rehabilitation of the Chernobyl-affected regions.
“Partially certain projects have started working. We believe that it is insufficient. A programme for the road development and the transport infrastructure should be implemented under the auspices of the World Bank,” Belarusian Prime Minister Mikhail Myasnikovich said at a meeting with World Bank Country Director for Belarus, Ukraine and Moldova Qimiao Fan on Thursday.
It is expedient to develop projects for water supplies and water disposal, and programmes for rehabilitation in Belarusian-affected regions, the premier said.
“We see it expedient to develop agreements on infrastructural facilities in water supplies and water disposal,” Myasnikovich said.
The WB investment portfolio includes five projects at the amount of about 550 million dollars. Over 22 years of Belarus’ membership in the World Bank the republic was provided loans at the size of 955 million dollars.
