WB to provide support for Rohingyas

The visiting executive directors of the World Bank Group yesterday said they will provide all sorts of support for displaced Rohingyas living in Bangladesh. Highly appreciating the incredible development that Bangladesh achieved in the last one decade, they also said they will continue support for its further progress. The WB officials said they witnessed 'incredible development' in Bangladesh and the country is much ahead in all social indices than other countries in South Asia. They made the remarks when they met Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at her official residence Ganabhaban.

PM's Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim briefed reporters after the meeting.

The WB officials expressed satisfaction at and praised the Bangladesh government for properly implementing its development policies as well as projects funded by the bank.

They said they are highly pleased to see that the local people of Cox's Bazar opened the door to accommodate and help the forcibly-displaced Rohingyas.

The WB officials informed Sheikh Hasina that they have visited Cox's Bazar to see the condition of the Rohingyas.

They also said the World Bank will provide all sorts of support for the displaced Myanmar nationals.

The Prime Minister said the policy of the government and Awami League is to ensure that people living in rural areas could enjoy the fruits of development.
