World Bank executive Coralie Gevers recently met with President Gnassingbé to review efforts in terms of public reforms

(Togo First) - Recently granted an audience by President Faure Gnassingbé, Coralie Gervers, the new chief of operations of World Bank in Togo, Benin, Côte d'Ivoire, and Guinea, discussed with the leader ongoing reforms in Togo and how the World Bank can support their implementation.

Following the meeting, which is Gevers' first as the new chief of operations of the Bretton Woods institution, she commented: "We had an interesting discussion on efforts started some years now and how the World Bank could back them. We currently have a portfolio of about $400 million dedicated to the development of the private sector, economic growth, and job creation." This portfolio, she added, also helped improve service quality in health, education and social protection.

"We also talked about future actions and of our (ed. note: World Bank) commitment to the country's development policy," she added while referring to future plans relative to the support of the World Bank to Togo's 2018-2022 national development plan.
