Highlights – Board Meeting of 22 November 2018
The Board noted that the Niger CSP 2018-2022 aims to support the Government's efforts to strengthen resilience and accelerate the growth of the Nigerien economy through two main pillars: i) promoting the competitiveness of the economy to unlock its potential and foster job creation; and ii) promoting the development of resilient agriculture for highly sustainable and inclusive growth. Board members welcomed the strategy but encouraged Management to provide pertinent and adapted responses to the challenges highlighted in the CSP, notably population growth, the private sector and the mobilization of domestic resources. Executive Directors also emphasized the importance for the Bank to provide expertise on governance issues and invited the Country Office to make efforts to improve the performance of the portfolio. At the end of the deliberations, the Board approved the CSP 2018-2022 for Niger.
