WASHINGTON, September 15. /ITAR-TASS/. The World Bank’s Vice President for Europe and Central Asia, Laura Tuck, is due to visit Belarus, Ukraine and Moldova on September 15-24, the organization said on Monday.
During the visit, Tuck is expected to meet with government counterparts, representatives of private sector, civil society, and international development partners, and to visit some of the projects backed by the World Bank in these countries, the World Bank said.
“The main goal of Ms. Tuck’s visit to the region is to discuss priority development issues in each of the countries, as well as the implementation of the ongoing World Bank’s programs and future cooperation,” the press release said.
This is Tuck’s first official visit to Belarus, Ukraine and Moldova since she took office in September 2013. Tuck is responsible for leading the World Bank’s development program in the Europe and Central Asia region, which includes 31 countries.
Last week, Ukraine received the first tranche of $500 million from the World Bank aimed at supporting reforms in the financial sector, the Ukrainian Finance Ministry said.
In March this year, the World Bank announced a crisis-response support package, intended to provide Ukraine with up to $3.5 billion by the end of 2014.
