26 February 2015, Nirapad News: World Bank Vice President for the South Asia Region, Annette Dixon, has pledged strong support for the people of Bangladesh to achieve the goal of turning the country into a middle-income one by the end of this decade. “Bangladesh is recognized globally for making remarkable progress in reducing poverty and advancing human development.

Other countries can learn from Bangladesh’s rich development experience,” said Dixon as she concluded her first visit to Bangladesh since her appointment as a World Bank Vice President in December 2014, said a press release.

“The World Bank remains committed to working with Bangladesh to reduce poverty and bring prosperity to all Bangladeshis. The World Bank has already approved more than $1 billion in new financing this fiscal year to improve primary education, child nutrition and resilience to natural disasters. We are on track to deliver a total of nearly $2 billion by the end of June,” she added, according to a news agency.
