2005-2009 - Mali - Mid-Term Review of Results Based Country Strategy Paper (PBCSP) and Extension to 2008-2011
The Bank Group’s assistance strategy in Mali, covering the 2005-2009 period, was approved by the Boards of Directors in November 2005. The strategy centres around two pillars: (i) improvement of competitiveness and private investments; and (ii) capacity building for the poor and reinforcement of their participation in growth. The Boards appreciated the country’s macroeconomic performance despite the difficulties inherent in the vulnerability of the country to exogenous shocks. However, the Boards expressed concern about the coordination of actions with the Government’s priorities and the persistence of poverty which affected more than 60% of the population.
